In honor of Holocaust Remembrance Day 2017, the University of Colorado’s Center for Bioethics and Humanities and the Program in Jewish Studies are pleased to host an evening panel with Dr. Tessa Chelouche, Co-Director of the Maimonides Institute for Medicine, Ethics and the Holocaust.
Dr. Chelouche and respondents will discuss the ways in which Jewish doctors practiced their profession in the most impossible conditions of the Nazi regime. The panel will explore the historical significance of Jewish doctors’ medical and public health work within various ghettos and camps during the Holocaust, and contextualize how knowledge of these events contribute to contemporary ethics around Holocaust memory and present-day health care practices.
In addition to Dr. Chelouche, panelists will include CU’s Matthew Wynia, MD, MPH, Director of the Center for Bioethics and Humanities; Daniel Goldberg, JD, PhD, Associate Professor at the Center for Bioethics and Humanities; and Elias Sacks, PhD, Assistant Professor of Religious Studies and Jewish Studies.
