Special Session

We are pleased to announce that the 2018 UNESCO Chair in Bioethics 13th World Conference on Bioethics, Medical Ethics, and Health Law will include a special session devoted to Bioethics and the Holocaust for the first time. The moral failures of the medical establishment during the Third Reich challenge medical educators in a way like few other events. Incorporating an understanding of medicine and the Holocaust into the medical curriculum can be a valuable way to encourage future healthcare providers to learn from past events that have transformed biomedical ethics and continue to inform practice and research.
