In the Third Reich, many German nurses served the Nazi regime, choosing to abandon professional ethics. They used their skills to murder people with physical and mental disabilities and illnesses, participating in cruel medical experimentation and genocide. Caring Corrupted: The Killing Nurses of the Third Reich chronicles the stories of these nurses and questions how and why they became involved in Nazi crimes.
This program will feature a screening of Caring Corrupted followed by a discussion with Dr. Patricia Starck, Dean Emerita of the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, Cizik School of Nursing, and Dr. Cathy Rozmus, PARTNERS Professor and Vice Dean of Academic Affairs at the Cizik School of Nursing at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston.
