Quote from Capt. S. Payne Best about his conversations with Dr. Rascher when both were in prison

"Almost at our first meeting he told me that he belonged to Himmler's personal staff, and that it was he who planned and supervised the contruction of the gas chambers and was responsible for the use of prisoners as guinea pigs in medical research. Obviously he saw nothing wrong in this and considered it merely a matter of expediency. As regards the gas chambers, he said that Himmler, a very kind-hearted man, was most anxious that prisoners should be exterminated in a manner which caused them the least anxiety and suffering. . . . (From "The Venlo Incident" by Captain S. Payne Best)
