Resolutions passed by the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations relating to the victims of so-called scientific experiments under the Nazi regime paved the way for the consideration of compensation for those unfortunate persons. The World Medical Association has been asked to assist in implementing these resolutions by making known the number and claims of surviving victims and by ascertaining whether they would be willing to have their names and addresses reported to the United Nations provided they were safeguarded from publicity and assured of satisfactory compensation for their disabilities. Dr. Louis H. Bauer, secretary-general of the World Medical Association, has asked that physicians of all member countries report such information to their national medical association for forwarding to the World Medical Association. It is hoped that members of the American Medical Association will cooperate and thus aid in securing redress for victims of concentration camp experiments.
