Atrocity/ debauchery general, because it's just so goddamn fascinating. Keep it SFW, no gore pictures
Here's a classic one:
>Unit 731 was a covertbiologicalandchemical warfareresearch and development unit of theImperial Japanese Armythat undertook lethalhuman experimentation during theSecond Sino-Japanese War(1937–1945) ofWorld War II.
>Vivisections were performed on prisoners after infecting them with various diseases. Researchers performed invasive surgery on prisoners, removing organs to study the effects of disease on the human body. These were conducted while the patients were alive because it was feared that the decomposition process would affect the results.
>To study the effects of untreated venereal diseases, male and female prisoners were deliberately infected withsyphilisand gonorrhea, then studied. Prisoners were also repeatedly subject to rape by guards.
>Humans were tied to stakes and used as targets to testgerm-releasing bombs,chemical weapons, and explosive bombs.
You left out the real fucked up bit
>Instead of being tried for war crimes, the researchers involved in Unit 731 were given immunity by the U.S. in exchange for their data on human experimentation.
>Japan got away with this shit
>America let them get away with this shit
>The Thugs would join travelers and gain their confidence
>This would allow them to then surprise and strangle their victims by pulling a handkerchief or noose tight around their necks
>They would then rob their victims of valuables and bury their bodies
>When tackling a large group, a Thuggee band might disperse along a route and join a group in stages
>If the travellers had doubts about any one party, they might confide their worries to another party of the same Thuggee band
>They usually killed their victims in darkness while the Thugs made music or noise to escape discovery
>Buhram Jemedar known as 'King of the Thugs' is sometimes suspected to have committed 931 murders
Yeah, the Axis powers gave us most of the scientific information we have about the effects of extreme conditions on the human body. The Nazis would freeze people alive to observe what happened to the body in extreme cold, and flew people really high in exposed cockpits to see what would happem at extreme heights.
>Henry Andrews Cotton, MD (1876 – May 1933) was an American psychiatrist
>believed that insanity was the result of untreated infections in the body, and to treat them he directed his dental and medical staff to practice experimental "surgical bacteriology" on the patients
>Cotton began to implement the emerging medical theory of infection-based psychological disorders by pulling patients' teeth, as they were suspected of harboring infections. If this failed to cure a patient, he sought sources of infection in tonsils and sinuses and often a tonsillectomy was recommended as additional treatment. If a cure was not achieved after these procedures, other organs were suspected of harboring infection. Testicles, ovaries, gall bladders, stomachs, spleens, cervixes, and especially colons were suspected as the focus of infection and were removed surgically
>Falling ill during the public hearing, some assert that Cotton suffered a nervous breakdown, diagnosed himself as suffering from several infected teeth, which he promptly had removed, pronounced himself cured, and returned to work.
Crown Prince Sado of Korea
>History indicates Sado suffered from mental illness; he was accused of randomly murdering people in the palace and of being a serial rapist. By court rules King Yeongjo could not kill his son by his own hands. As a result, Yeongjo, with the consent of Sado's mother, Lady Yi, issued a royal decree that ordered Sado climb into and be sealed within a large wooden rice chest on a hot July day in 1762. After eight days, Sado died.
