The discussion will take place on 2 December 2021, marking the International Day of Persons with Disabilities (3 December) and the 75th anniversary of the beginning of the Doctors’ Trial (9 December 1946).
The online discussion will bring together experts to consider the issue of medical ethics during, and in response to, the Holocaust. Panelists will discuss educational initiatives that draw on the history of the Holocaust to develop ethical leadership in a contemporary context.
