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.

Film Screening: "The Mask You Live In"

Film Screening: "The Mask You Live In"

Monday, April 27, 2015 - 6:30 pm

As part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, Women's and Gender Studies and Wellness and Recreation Services will host a screening and discussion of "The Mask You Live In." This documentary, from the makers of "Miss Representation," follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America’s narrow definition of masculinity. These gender stereotypes interconnect with race, class and circumstance, creating a maze of identity issues boys and young men must navigate to become “real” men. "The Mask You Live In" ultimately illustrates how we, as a society, can raise a healthier generation of boys and young men.


Following the 90-minute film, Mark Rowe-Barth, Alan Heisterkamp and Michael Fleming will lead a discussion.

This event is free and open to the public. Please note this film contains content that may not be suitable to children under 16.

Location: Room 115, Seerley Hall
