Webinar – The Vienna Protocol and Dealing with Human Remains from the Holocaust Era
CMATH presented an international webinar on January 29, 2018 titled The Vienna Protocol: Ethical Issues in Dealing with Human Remains from the Holocaust. This webinar reviewed 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 discussed 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 included Dr. Barbara Hales from CMATH (moderator) and Dr. Sabine Hildebrandt, Dr. William Seidelman and Rabbi Joseph Polak.
