ETHM 6016 Bioethics and the Holocaust ()

()

Credits: 3

Course Description:

While the Holocaust has traditionally been taught from a historical perspective, this course intentionally shows how the Holocaust continues to have contemporary ramifications for the ways in which the power of medicine and the promise of scientific progress can be used to subvert the basic human rights of those deemed inferior. The course also provides strategies and techniques to mitigate those risks in order to create opportunities to improve the future of society.
