One of the most notorious figures of the Holocaust, Josef Mengele epitomized a noble profession gone wrong. Amplified by popular culture’s fascination with him, Mengele has come to symbolize the Holocaust, particularly the gruesome medical experiments carried out in Nazi concentration camps. But how did the man become the legend? Was Mengele the embodiment of evil, or a “normal” medical professional who made terrible choices? Join Dr. David Marwell, author of Mengele: Unmasking the Angel of Death, for an in-depth look at Mengele’s life and his role in the Holocaust.

David G. Marwell, Ph.D. has had a distinguished career in public history. He spent nine years at the U.S. Department of Justice as Chief of Investigative Research, conducting research in support of the investigation and prosecution of Nazi war criminals in the United States, including the investigations of Klaus Barbie and Josef Mengele. He also served as the Director of the Berlin Document Center, a repository for captured personnel-related files of the Nazi Party, the Executive Director of the JFK Assassination Records Review Board, an independent federal agency established to identify, locate, and make available to the public all records relating to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, and the Associate Museum Director at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. In 2000, Marwell was appointed Director & CEO of the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York City and led this important institution for fifteen years.

Generously supported by Julie Meetal Berman and Dr. Joseph M. Berman, M.D., in memory of Les and Magda Mittelman.
