“Inmate Physicians in Nazi Concentration Camps: Scope for Action Available to Them, and Dilemmas They Faced”
March 22, 2017 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Location Albert & Ethel Herzstein Theater
Inmate physicians were Jewish and non-Jewish doctors who had been deported to concentration camps and assigned to work in medical facilities there.  They treated fellow inmates suffering from hunger and the effects of forced labor.  These physicians were forced to treat too many patients with too few resources. Patients unable to recover within a short time were "selected" for death. Inmate physicians were forced to participate in these activities and were faced with a profound moral dilemma regarding their official duties in the camp. Dr. Ley, deputy director of Sachsenhausen Memorial & Museum, will discuss how inmate physicians dealt with the fact that ultimately they could not serve as doctors in the concentration camps without violating humanitarian principles and that standards of medical ethics. Admission is free and open to the public, but registration is required at http://www.hmh.org/RegisterEvent.aspx.
