A cabeça de Mengele.

He was describing Mengele’s Auschwitz self, the new self that can take shape in virtually anyone in adapting to an extreme environment. With the Auschwitz self, Mengele’s potential for evil became actual, even as he maintained elements of his prior self that included affection toward children. In this process, each part-self behaved as a functioning whole: the Auschwitz self enabling him to function in that murderous environment and to exploit its human resources with considerable efficiency; the prior self enabling him to maintain a sense of decency. His powerful commitment to Nazi ideology served as a bridge, a necessary connection between the two.
