Dr. August Hirt

August Hirt was the chairman of the anatomy department at the Reich University in Strassbourg. He received permission from Himmler to receive prisoners from Auschwitz in order to create a collection of Jewish skeletons. These 115 people were murdered and sent to Hirt at the University in order to be defleshed and preserved.

Hirt was captured by French troops, but he killed himself in Schonenbach in 1945.
