Deadly Medicine in the Nazi Era
posted by: leebarzel
Summary: What Turned Physician Healers into Killers?
In Nazi Germany, the medical profession justified the killing of millions of "undesirable" individuals through appeals to racist ideology and eugenics. Healers and caretakers became killers, and medical research devolved into inhumane and unethical experimentation.
Please join us for an engaging presentation as we explore how and why German physicians became involved in the criminal actions of the Nazi regime and contemplate the lessons of this history for us today.
