Praise

"A powerful reminder not only of what happened, but of the monumental evil done by particular human beings who were trained to heal and cure."—Robert Coles, Boston Globe

"This is not only one of the most important works on medical ethics yet written. It also breaks through the frontiers of historiography to provide a convincing psychological interpretation of the Third Reich and the crimes of National Socialism. No one will be able in my view to write perceptively about those times in the future without referring to this interpretation."—Neal Ascherson, New York Review of Books
