Carl Peter Værnet (April 28, 1893 – November 25, 1965) was a Danish doctor at the Buchenwald concentration camp. He is alleged to have experimented on homosexual prisoners, such as by inserting artificial hormone glands in their groins, with two prisoners contraction infections which became fatal. After the war, Værnet may have convinced British and Danish authorities that his hormone treatments to turn homosexual men heterosexual were important, worthy scientific research, and these authorities may have allowed him to avoid a trial and to move to Argentina. In Argentina, he lived under his own name and resumed his hormone research, with funding from the Argentinian ministry of health.[1]
