25-02-2015 15:00

Gunther von Hagens is a doctor. He is German. He is very interested in anatomy. He can preserve bodies.

The doctor shocks people. He has an online shop. You can buy body parts in the shop. They are animal and human parts.

A museum opens in Berlin. It has 20 preserved bodies. You can visit and watch the bodies. There are many body parts, too. Is this interesting to you? You can be part of this project. After you die, you can donate your body to the project.

Difficult words: anatomy (the study of how bodies look and what is inside them), preserve (to make something stay good for a long time), donate (to give).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
