Nazi Medicine / The Cross and The Star

Two riveting documentaries by director John J. Michalczyk, which confront the horror of Hitler's Third Reich. "Nazi Medicine" studies the step by step process that led the German medical profession down the unethical road to genocide. It graphically documents the racial theories and eugenics principles that set the stage for the doctors' participation in sterilization and euthanasia, the selections at the death camps, as well as inhuman and unethical human experimentation. "The Cross and the Star" find echoes of anti Semitism in the otherwise profound, lyrical Gospel of St. John, the sermons of St. Augustine, the writings of Martin Luther, and in the voices of the Crusaders and the Spanish Inquisitors - all of which helped sow the ideological seeds that developed into Nazism.
