Deadly Medicine in Perspective

On October 27, 2011 Ms. Hedy Epstein, Holocaust survivor, speaker and peace activist, and William Schneider, Ph.D., Professor of History and Director of the Medical Humanities Program at Indiana University/Purdue University, presented lectures in conjunction with the Bernard Becker Medical Library's hosting of the traveling exhibition "Deadly Medicine: Creating the Master Race." The exhibition, created by the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., highlights how physicians, geneticists, anthropologists and others in the healing professions were major participants in the Holocaust. During the Nazi era in Europe, Adolf Hitler led a broad effort using German physicians and others to racially “cleanse” European society of people seen as biologically inferior, including those with birth defects, mental illness, inherited diseases and those perceived as racial enemies of the German people.


Ms. Epstein’s presentation begins at the 12 minute mark; Dr. Schneider’s presentation begins at the 1 hour, 2 minute mark.
