CHINA is carrying out barbaric medical experiments on Uighur Muslims in a chilling echo of cruel research by Nazi doctors, campaigners have claimed.
Inmates in the Communist regime’s network of “re-education camps” are allegedly being given mysterious pills, injections and even having organs removed while still alive.
Nazi doctors conducted inhumane experiments on Jews and other persecuted minorities in concentration camps which shocked the world when it was exposed at the end of World War 2.
But it is alleged a similar sinister practice is going on today on Uighurs and other political prisoners who are rounded up and bussed to camps in China.
According to Western estimates, between one million and two million people northwestern province of Xinjiang have been incarcerated at these facilities during Beijing’s campaign of oppression.
An Amnesty International report reveals claims from former prisoners that they have been subjected to medical experiments without consent are being carried out – just like under the Nazis.
Sacha Deshmukh, Amnesty International UK’s CEO, told The Sun Online: “The treatment to which the Uighur people are being subjected in Xinjiang camps is nothing short of horrifying.
“We know there’s widespread belief among detainees that forced sterilisation is being practised on them, and we have concerns about other forms of medical experimentation without consent too.
It is impossible to verify the accounts because China is a highly secretive totalitarian state, but a number of claims do seem to match.
If confirmed, this would be a direct violation of international law that had in part been drawn up in response wake of Nazi crimes against humanity.
Ms Deshmukh added: “The only proper way to uncover with any certainty what’s going on in Xinjiang is for human rights observers and journalists to be allowed unfettered access, until then any denials just ring hollow.”

Based on shocking testimonies of prisoners who have fled from China, the human rights organisation said inmates would have mystery injections and have blood drawn.
The doctors were said to have been tightlipped about what the injections, or said they were vaccinations — some given every 10 to 15 days, and samples were for.
The report stated: “While government documents indicate that detainees were required to be vaccinated, the frequency with which some detainees report being injected is suspicious.
“A few former detainees claimed they were given injections or made to take pills every couple of weeks.”
It was claimed that the inmates were given “blue” tablets every two to three weeks.
Some former detainees report some people receiving injections were “happy” or seemed inebriated.
Nazi experiments during World War 2
NAZI scientists are known to have carried out twisted experiments on prisoners behind closed doors of their viel concentration camps.
Soviet soldiers, Jews, disable people and other ethnic groups were all subjected to the disgusting tests which essentially amounted to medical torture.
And most the procedures involved the sick Nazi doctors attempting to perfect the “master race” or test terrifying new weapons.
Disturbing experiments included warped and seemingly nonsensical tests on 1,500 sets of twins – including creating conjoined twins by stitching them together or injecting dyes into their eyes.
Living people were frozen or put in low pressure chambers in an effort to help pilots survive at higher altitudes.
Victims were infected with malaria, typhus and other infectious diseases – with children also having their lymph nodes removed.
Forced sterilisation and surgical removal of the sexual organs were also common place as some female patients were also raped so doctors could study the passage of sperm.
Others doctors removed bones and muscles without anaesthesia, or repeatedly struck patients on the head to see what would happen.
After the end of World War 2 and the fall of The Third Reich, the crimes were exposed during what became known as “The Doctors’ Trial”.
Sick physicians attempted to claim their experiments were driven by wartime necessity – but it ended up with new international laws being drawn up on medical experiments, the Nuremberg Code.
A few male former detainees claimed side-effects were made impotent while others report memory loss, eyesight loss and trouble with sleeping.
During the height of China’s Covid-19 outbreak early last year, one middle-aged Uighur woman told The Associated Press that she was detained and slung into a cramped cell with others.
There, she said, she was forced to drink medicine that made her feel weak and nauseous, guards watching as she gulped.
She and the others also had to strip naked once a week and cover their faces as guards hosed them and their cells down with disinfectant “like firemen,” she said.
“It was scalding,” recounted the woman by phone from Xinjiang, declining to be named out of fear of retribution.
“My hands were ruined, my skin was peeling.”

Some were also being coerced into swallowing medicine that included ingredients banned in Germany, Switzerland, the US and other countries for high levels of toxins and carcinogens, the news agency reported.
Another former inmate Sayragul Sauytbay, a 45-year-old Chinese Muslim of Kazakh descent, said she was detained by the state in November 2017.
While in a camp in Xinjiang she has allegedly witnessed medical experiments being carried out on humans.
Speaking to Israeli newspaper Haaretz, she said: “The inmates would be given pills or injections. They were told it was to prevent diseases, but the nurses told me secretly that the pills were dangerous and that I should not take them.
“The pills had different kinds of effects. Some prisoners were cognitively weakened. Women stopped getting their period and men became sterile.”
Meanwhile, an independent China Tribunal sitting in London and chaired by Sir Geoffrey Nice QC, who was knighted for his services to international criminal justice, last year concluded prisoners are having their organs taken out while still alive.
The Tribunal concluded that “thousands of innocent people have been killed to order having their bodies – the physical integrity of their beings – cut open while still alive for their kidneys, livers, hearts, lungs, cornea and skin to be removed and turned into commodities for sale.”
‘BOYCOTT CHINESE RESEARCH’
In light of the troubling findings, Dr Adnan Sharif, Department of Nephrology and Transplantation, Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham has called for a boycott on publishing transplant research findings from China.
Writing in the British Medical Journal, he said: “Given credible allegations, and absence of evidence to the contrary, can we be sure that Chinese practice conforms to international law and ethical norms?
“If not, research linked to unethical transplantation is itself unethical.
“Many journals already have policies refusing transplantation research that uses organs from executed prisoners.
“However, more than 90 per cent of 445 Chinese transplant-related studies published between 2000-2017 failed to conform to these policies, researchers found, warning journals of ‘complicity and moral hazard’.”
Biometric facial recognition surveillance is another sinister development being spearhead by the no-holds-barred Chinese state.
The Uighur people has often been described as the “testbed” for this.
And as reported by The Sun Online earlier this year, activists have accused the Communist regime of being engaged in the world’s biggest forced labour outrage since the Nazis.
From your phone, TV and trainers to your clothes and Covid masks, anti-slavery campaigners have warned there’s a very good chance part of them was made by the political prisoners.
