Three well known scholars, bioethicist Jonathan H. Marks, anthropologist Kenneth Weiss, and historian Sheila Faith Weiss, will discuss the legacy of Nazi medicine, science, and health policy in a conversation moderated by historian Greg Eghigian. Questions and comments from the audience will be welcomed, as we consider both the historical significance of the events of the 1930s and 1940s as well as their relevance to medical and ethical issues today.
