Healing by Killing

This film describes the career of two Nazi physicians, one a young doctor who acquired his “professional skill” during a euthanasia program and then went on to become the first commandant of the Treblinka concentration camp, the other a renowned gynecologist who performed experimental sterilization procedures in Auschwitz. The film examines key questions of medical ethics raised by the responsibility of German physicians in creating the mass killing machine that was the Holocaust. Set against these facts, the film then goes on to examine contemporary medical ethics.
