Curriculum for the Holocaust: Lessons for Medicine

Download PDF • 386KB

Using their experience as a physician and a historian, Profs. Esteban González-López and Rosa Rios have taught Spanish medical students about medicine and the Holocaust for many years.

Their innovative course, which includes visits to European medical sites relevant to the Holocaust, is a model for those who wish to teach this material at their institution.

The curriculum includes an extensive bibliography of books and papers as well as testimonies, casebooks, websites, and a filmography.

Their curriculum, along with those posted on CMATH’s website by Sabine Hildebrandt, Ashley Fernandes, David Brenner, Stacy Gallin, and Sheldon Rubenfeld, are excellent resources for educators.
