by Hedy S. Wald, PhD

Confronting, reflecting upon, and learning about egregious ethical violations of physicians and the medical establishment in Germany and Austria during the Third Reich have been described as a moral imperative within medical education. Through lenses of medical educator and daughter of a Holocaust survivor, Dr. Hedy Wald, delves into this dark history and braids the story of her collaboration with the Witten-Herdecke Faculty of Health, teaching medical and psychology students in Germany.

Hedy S. Wald, Ph.D., is Clinical Professor of Family Medicine at the Alpert Medical School of Brown University; Faculty, Harvard Medical School Global Pediatrics Leadership Program; and Commissioner, Lancet Commission on Medicine and the Holocaust.
