There are 4 comments on Should Doctors Learn from Nazi Medical Research on Holocaust Victims?

  1. I read this with interest, but think the conclusion is slightly incorrect.

    Not only “can” they use this work to do good, I think that ethically they MUST. Not just for the patient, but for those whose lives were taken in this books creation.

    Where the use of this book can bring about good, doing good with it honours those whose lives were taken.

  2. This is the exact thing I am doing my essay on for graduate school and I would like to get a survivor’s prospective.
    Where is justice as a component of research ethic? I think pointing out the USA was complicit in sterilization doesn’t make sterilization correct.
    We can’t say the ends justifies the mean so we should be using drawing and information from murdered people because that would give their lives meaning. Their lives had meaning before the Holocaust.
    I wish I could speak with a survivor of the experiments.

  3. I am an offspring of Nazi medical experimentation. I was born with blood cancer and cleft pallet… I suffer a lot…is there any research to help me understand my failing body. Is there doctors who would actually help and treat some of these issues?
