The US Holocaust Memorial Museum exhibit “Deadly Medicine: Creating the Master Race” opens at the Hub this week. The exhibit examines how the Nazi regime, with the collaboration of medical professionals, used the pseudo-science of eugenics to legitimize persecution and genocide. The exhibit is open until May 2, 2010. A series of events tied to the exhibit have been scheduled for February 16, March 25 and April 21. For more information about the exhibit and the events, please go to: http://rockethics.psu.edu/events/deadlymedicine0910.shtml
This extremely important exhibit should be of interest to everyone. But for medical students, students in the life sciences, and students pursuing a minor in Bioethics and Medical Humanities or Science, Technology and Society, it’s not to be missed!
