[A curious note regarding Rascher's death appears on p. 203 of Nazi Mass Murder (Eugen Kogon et al., Eds., 1993): "Dr. Rascher and his wife (also condemned to death) had tried to pass off as biologically their own two children they had merely taken into their home. That this could be made an offense punishable by death is yet another incredible aspect of the Nazi regime."]
