Seventy-four years after the end of World War II, the microscopic remains of political prisoners killed by the Nazi regime and then used in medical experiments, were finally buried in the Dorotheenstadt cemetery in Berlin on Monday.

According to reports, more than 300 tissue samples of people who were murdered by the Nazis in the Berlin-Plotzensee Prison were found in 2016 by the family of anatomy professor Hermann Stieve (1886-1952), who reportedly received bodies of Nazi victims for research purposes. The samples were reportedly given to Berlin's Charite hospital in order to be studied.

A mass was celebrated for the community and family members had the opportunity to pay their final respects.
