From Darkness to Life: Legacy of Medicine and the Holocaust @ Zoom | United States

Join Jewish National Fund-USA as we confront, reflect upon, and learn about the egregious ethical violations of physicians and the medical establishment in Germany and Austria during the Third Reich. While atrocities committed during the infamous medical experiments are well-known, learning more about these crimes against humanity during the Holocaust has been described as a moral imperative in medical education. As a medical educator and daughter of an Auschwitz survivor, Dr. Hedy Wald shares her recent experience of sharing this education with medical students in Germany, reflecting on the role of medicine during the Holocaust, and how it continues to strengthen her connection to Israel.
