“If we do not talk about it, if we do not remember, then the world will never know. And that has made me speak about it.”

Medical Warriors & Resistors during the Holocaust: A Study of Moral Courage

 

A Conversation with Dr. Cheyenne Martin

 

Tuesday, June 17, 2014 – 7:30pm

 

Pleasant Ridge Presbyterian Church
5950 Montgomery Road
Cincinnati, OH 45213
 
This program is presented in memory of Mrs. Trudy Coppel. A loving nurse, wife, mother, sister and friend, she will always be remembered for her kind heart and soul. One of the many people she cared for was her loving husband, Werner Coppel.
 

Dr. Cheyenne Martin, medical ethicist and noted scholar on medical resistance in the Holocaust, will present an interactive presentation on the legacy of Jewish and non-Jewish physicians, nurses and dentists involved in the Resistance during the Nazi era. Their actions contrast Dr. Josef Mengele and other Nazi doctors who murdered thousands of children and adults in euthanasia and experimental programs. Dr. Martin is the Rebecca & Edwin Gale Professor of Ethics at the UTMB Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and School of Nursing in Galveston. She received her doctorate in bio-medical ethics from the University of Texas School of Public Health, Houston and was a fellow at the Kennedy Center for Bioethics in Washington, DC and at Rice University.
