Lecture: "Justifying the Unthinkable: The 'Ethics' of Nazi Medical Experimentation"

featuring Arthur Caplan, M.D.

Date: Friday, October 12, 2012
Time: 12:00 PM
Building: 1430 Tulane Avenue (Medicine), School of Medicine Auditorium
Location: downtown campus

The field of bioethics has either remained silent in the face of Nazi crimes or accepted the myths that Nazi biomedicine was inept, mad, or coerced. The fact is that many of those who committed the crimes of the Holocaust were competent physicians and scientists who acted from strong moral convictions. This puzzle of how it came to be that physicians and scientists who caused so much suffering and death did so in the belief that they were morally right is the focus of this presentation by New York University bioethicist Dr. Arthur Caplan.
