"During WWII, illegal medical experiments were performed in Nazi Germany on Jewish prisoners where they tortured and sometimes killed their subjects.

Some on the one hand believe that it is wrong to release the knowledge because of the horrible acts that were performed by those scientists. On the other hand, some push for the knowledge to be released because the knowledge discovered then still cannot be rediscovered today and that by releasing the information, since it will save lives today, those Jewish prisoners who died will not have died in vain.

"(this is paraphrased, but I am not making any of this question up) During WWII, illegal medical experiments were performed in Nazi Germany on Jewish prisoners where they tortured and sometimes killed their subjects. Some authorized people have read the results of these experiments and found that the Germans uncovered such advanced scientific knowledge that scientists today still have not quite caught up to some of the discoveries. The results of these German experiments have not been released to the public due to the brutalities associated with them. Some on the one hand believe that it is wrong to release the knowledge because of the horrible acts that were performed by those scientists. On the other hand, some push for the knowledge to be released because the knowledge discovered then still cannot be rediscovered today and that by releasing the information, since it will save lives today, those Jewish prisoners who died will not have died in vain. If it was your decision, what would you do with the information? Release it or not? (Yes, it was this long, and I promise I am not lying about this question.
