About Miklós Nyiszli

  • Miklós Nyiszli (17 June 1901, Szilágysomlyó, Austria-Hungary – 5 May 1956, Oradea, Romania) was a Jewish prisoner at the Auschwitz concentration camp.
  • Nyiszli, his wife, and young daughter, were transported to Auschwitz in June 1944.
  • Upon his arrival, Nyiszli volunteered as a doctor and was sent to work at number 12 barracks where he operated on and tried to help the ill with only the most basic medical supplies and tools.
  • He was under the supervision of Josef Mengele, an SS officer, physician and war criminal. Mengele decided after observing Nyiszli's skills to move him to a specially built autopsy and operating theatre.
