Traveling Exhibit: "Deadly Medicine: Creating the Master Race"

Saturday, April 11, 2015 (All day) to Sunday, June 7, 2015 (All day)

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s traveling exhibition Deadly Medicine: Creating the Master Race examines how the Nazi leadership, in collaboration with individuals in professions traditionally charged with healing and the public good, used science to help legitimize persecution, murder, and ultimately, genocide.

Deadly Medicine explores the Holocaust’s roots in then-contemporary scientific and pseudo-scientific thought,” explains exhibition curator Susan Bachrach. “At the same time, it touches on complex ethical issues we face today, such as how societies acquire and use scientific knowledge and how they balance the rights of the individual with the needs of the larger community.”

This exhibit is part of the annual partnership between the UNI Center for Holocaust and Genocide Education and the Grout Museum District is bring a traveling exhibit to the Waterloo-Cedar Falls area dealing with the Holocaust, genocide and human rights.
