The Houston Academy of Medicine-Texas Medical Center (HAM-TMC) Library is pleased to announce that The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s traveling exhibition, Deadly Medicine: Creating the Master Race is currently on display at the library through September 23, 2009. The exhibition examines how the Nazi leadership, in collaboration with individuals in professions traditionally charged with healing and the public good, used science to help legitimize persecution, murder and, ultimately, genocide.
The exhibition contains reproductions of historical photographs, films and testimony from Holocaust survivors. It is a self-guided tour that takes approximately 20-30 minutes to see.
