Summary:
"'Nazi medicine' studies the step-by-step process that led the German medical profession down an unethical road to genocide. It graphically documents the racial theories and eugenics principles that set the stage for the doctors' participation in sterilization and euthanasia, the selections at the death camps, as well as inhuman and unethical human experimentation. 'The cross and the star' finds disturbing echoes of anti-Semitism in the ... Gospel of St. John, the sermons of St. Augustine, the writings of Martin Luther and in the voices of the Crusaders and the Spanish Inquisitors--all of which may have helped the ideological seeds that developed into Nazism."--Container.
