This proves to be a difficult topic, but there are some resources. While many of the experiments they conducted are considered scientifically invalid for a number of reasons (including cruelty of course), writers and researchers have a definite bias against giving Nazis any sort of credit, however incidentally.

Searching our catalog for books, I searched the phrase nazi science and also human experimentation, and got a few relevant results.

Electronic resources proved to be more difficult. There wasn't much in our databases. I did find some results on genetic testing, in the form of testing for Tay-Sachs, as a socially acceptable alternative to their program of Eugenics. The link is below.

I searched Google Scholar for Nazi Hypothermia, and got some interesting results. I also searched Google Books for Nazi Cancer, and got some results.

Also search for Nazi Toxicity. Some of their activities influenced neuroscience.

You will also want to search about the Nuremberg Trial for other ideas on experiments they conducted that might have an impact on modern science.
