Keeping Holocaust Memories Alive

July 1, 2003

When dermatologist and minoxidil inventor Guinter Kahn gives speeches to medical school staff and students, he does not talk about the profession as a healing one; rather, he reminds his audiences of a time when doctors were cold-blooded killers. He talks calculatedly about how doctors killed Jews during the Holocaust - as if he were standing there watching - relating precise dates, names and stories. His aim? In his own small way, he says, he hopes to keep people remembering, so that those horrendous crimes never happen again.
