Eugenics Under the Nazis: Made in America


*The event has already taken place on this date: Mon, 08/24/2020
Eugenics flowered in America, championed by the best and the brightest including Margaret Sanger to Theodore Roosevelt. It was a profoundly optimistic view, that humanity could be improved by controlling human breeding. The Nazi death camp horrors were directly based upon laws in Indiana and California which allowed for involuntary sterilization.

Join us online as Dr. Larry Guttmacher explores this fascinating yet disturbing history of man’s attempt to create a "master race." Registration is required in order to receive the Zoom link. Visit the link below to get started!

Dr. Guttmacher is the Professor of Clinical Psychiatry and Clinical Medical Humanities & Bioethics at the University of Rochester Department of Medical Humanities and Bioethics (URSMD)
