Download The Nazi Doctors: Medical Killing and the Psychology of Genocide Pdf Book Description:
In his most powerful and significant book, famous psychiatrist Robert Jay Lifton introduces a brilliant analysis of this vital role that German physicians played in the Nazi genocide. This is an extraordinary book! The writer interviews some living NAZI physicians to find out in their thinking and the way they rationalized killing individuals after taking an oath to maintain health. I bought this copy for a friend after she remarked on how small we’re educated about the Holocaust. As an MD myself I had never understood it was the doctors who conducted the death camps: The men and women who did the choices were physicians. The men and women who did the experiments were physicians. The individuals who looked in the windows of their killing chambers also gave the orders to switch off the gas if the previous person took the final breath were ALL physicians. I think this book ought to be required reading for many MDs – and I figure not merely MDs but all students of history.
