Nazi medical experiments exhibit opens today in Boston

BOSTON — The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and Harvard Medical School are set to open a Boston exhibit on the effects of deadly Nazi medical experiments during the Holocaust.

The traveling “Deadly Medicine: Creating the Master Race” is scheduled to open Thursday at the Francis A. Countway Library of Medicine in Boston.

Organizers say the exhibition will reveal the role scientists, physicians, public health officials, and academics played in implementing the Nazis’ program of “racial hygiene.”

Irene Hizme, a Holocaust survivor who was also a victim of the medical experiments, is scheduled to speak at the Joseph Martin Conference Center at Harvard Medical School after the exhibit opens.
