Thompson took on himself a campaign to deal with “the sacrifice of humans as experimental subjects,” which was well-nigh universal in Nazi Germany (p. 115). Thompson was convinced by extensive interviews and records in half a dozen universities and hospitals that “90 percent of the members of the medical profession at the highest level were involved one way or another in work of this nature” (p. 115). Dealing with this was not a simple question of identifying and prosecuting criminal activity; there were conflicting goals in the Allied official organizations on several issues and in Thompson’s own understanding of what needed to be dealt with. First, there was the hope that beneficial scientific results could be salvaged from the “experiments,” a hope that Thompson shared at the time. Second, during the war and afterward, Allied governments and international organizations, including the British Foreign Office, the International Red Cross, and the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration, looked on concentration camps, the Holocaust, and the ethics of medicine in Germany as issues that were not of great importance and that would detract from their major goals. And third, Thompson’s goals went far beyond prosecution; his hope was to heal the German psyche.
