Doctors Under Hitler Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this history of medicine and the medical profession in the Third Reich, Michael Kater examines the career patterns, educational training, professional organization, and political socialization of German physicians under Hitler. His discussion ranges widely, from doctors who participated in Nazi atrocities, to those who actively resisted the regime's perversion of healing, to the vast majority whose ideology and behavior fell somewhere between the two extremes. He also takes a chilling look at the post-Hitler medical establishment's problematic relationship to the Nazi past.

Synopsis:

The author has drawn from an extraordinary range of sources.

Journal of Modern History Kater's important book deserves close attention from historians of medicine and German historians alike.

Isis [Kater] sheds new light on the motives of the perpetrators of medical criminality.

Bulletin of the History of Medicine [W]e are once more profoundly in his debt for scouring the archives for invaluable new documentation. His analysis is equally admirable.

American Historical Review An important book.

Historische Zeitschrift

Synopsis:

A detailed history of the German medical establishment under Hitler that explores the psychological, ethical, and political consequences brought about by its perverse actions.
