From 1933 to 1945, Nazi Germany carried out a campaign to "cleanse" German society of people viewed as biological threats to the nation's "health". Enlisting the help of physicians and medically trained geneticists, psychiatrists, and anthropologists, the Nazis developed racial health policies that started with the mass sterilization of "hereditarily diseased" persons and ended with the near annihilation of European Jewry.


Deadly Medicine: Creating the Master Race traces this history from the early 20th-century international eugenics movement to the Nazi regime’s "science of race". It also challenges viewers to reflect on the present-day interest in genetic manipulation that promotes the possibility of human perfection.


Produced by The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, this exhibit has been made possible by The Lerner Foundation and Eric F. and Lore Ross, with additional support from the Lester Robbins and Sheila Johnson Robbins Traveling and Special Exhibitions Fund established in 1990.
