Center for Medicine after the Holocaust is pleased to present “The Vienna Protocol: Ethical Issues in Dealing with Human Remains from the Holocaust” on January 29, 2018 at 12:30 PM Central (1:30 EST). This webinar will review recent discoveries of human remains from the Holocaust, both underground and in museums and medical schools, and the challenges of disposing of them. Leading international scholars on medicine and the Holocaust will discuss two key issues:
• The ethical issues around the initial use of Holocaust victims in medical research and education; and
• The religious and moral challenges of how to properly dispose of human remains as they are discovered.
Speakers will include Dr. Sabine Hildebrandt, Dr. William Seidelman and Rabbi Joseph Polak.
