Like many professionals, health workers played a role during the Holocaust. From the T4 Euthanasia Program, which targeted people with disabilities, to doctors and nurses in the camps who performed medical experiments on victims, the illusion of medical care was often used to mask much more heinous activities. Join Dr. Charlotte Decoster, Director of Education, for a discussion of the healthcare profession during the Holocaust.

The History Highlights lecture series features Holocaust and human rights topics presented by Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum historians and educators. Space is limited! Please register for one ticket per device used. This program is recommended for high school students and adults.
