FROM THE USHMM: Watch live | Doctors Who Dared

United States Holocaust Memorial Museum

Doctors Who Dared
Live Digital Program

Some doctors, nurses, and scientists—including Jews who were Nazi targets themselves—risked their safety to care for those being persecuted during the Holocaust.

Join Museum historians for a discussion on how frontline health workers responded to starvation, trauma, and the spread of disease in ghettos and camps during World War II.

WHEN: Wednesday, May 20, 9:30 a.m. ET
WHERE: United States Holocaust Memorial Museum's Facebook page
