The Hippocratic Oath became an impossible, elusive goal for doctors tasked with treating patients in concentration camps. There were too many patients, not enough resources and, if the healing wasn't speedy enough, the infirm were selected for death. In this lecture by Dr. Ley, deputy director of Sachsenhausen Memorial and Museum, learn how these inmate physicians were faced with moral and ethical dilemmas on a daily basis. This one is free, but registration is required.
