Psychology/Pyschologists in Nazi Germany : LUSENET : History & Theory of Psychology : One Thread

I was wondering if there were any major psychological tests done by the Nazi's, for example in their twin studies. And if there were, who were some of the main psychologists and what "conclusions" did they come to? I am trying to stay away from the studies and advances they made in the area of propaganda and mass marketing of ideas, but I have not been able to find any resources that point to much else. Any comments or suggestions would be very helpful.
