Short Description:

Forced and slave labourers of the Nazi regime were used in all areas of the medical and welfare system. The aim of the project is to analyse the example of Goettingen and the state of historical research of foreign labour in Nazi medicine, a subject which has been overlooked by scholars for long time. It raises fundamental questions about the welfare and medical provisions of forced labourers, and about the moral obligation of the German medical profession to support the compensation of slave labourers. The 104th German Medical Conference in May 2001 has endorsed this position.
