In this history of medicine and the medical profession in the Third Reich, Michael Kater examines the career patterns, educational training, professional organization, and political socialization of German physicians under Hitler. His discussion ranges widely, from doctors who participated in Nazi atrocities, to those who actively resisted the regime's perversion of healing, to the vast majority whose ideology and behavior fell somewhere between the two extremes. He also takes a chilling look at the post-Hitler medical establishment's problematic relationship to the Nazi past.
Michael H. Kater is Distinguished Research Professor of History at the Centre for German and European Studies at York University in Toronto. He is a Guggenheim Fellow and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada and has published widely in the area of modern German history.
