Product Overview

In an effort to create the Master Race, Nazi physicians and bioscientists, using American legislative models, money, and moral support, sterilized 400,000 and euthanized 200,000 German citizens while developing the gas chambers and crematoria used to murder 6,000,000 Jews. Rubenfeld and the contributors to this collection posit that German physicians betrayed the Hippocratic Oath when they chose knowledge over wisdom, the state over the individual, a fuhrer over God, and personal gain over professional ethics. This groundbreaking work questions whether, since the best physicians of the early twentieth century could abandon their patients, the best physicians of the twenty-first century can be certain that they will not do the same.
