Summary Nazi Medicine: In the Shadow of the Reich studies the step-by-step process that led the German medical profession down an unethical road to genocide. It graphically documents the racial theories and eugenics principles that set the stage for the doctors' participation in sterilization and euthanasia, the selections at the death camps, as well as inhuman and unethical human experimentation. The Cross and the Star finds disheartening echoes of anti-Semitism in the otherwise profound, lyrical Gospel of St. John, the sermons of St. Augustine, the writings of Martin Luther and in the voices of the Crusaders and the Spanish Inquisitors - all of which may have helped sow the ideological seeds that developed into Nazism. "The horror of Nazi eugenics & experimentation. This is a work of truth and timeliness." - Allan A. Ryan, U.S. Dept. of Justice. "I was very taken with The Cross and the Star. Not only is it moving and graphic history, it is the most honest and penetrating analysis of Christianity's role in the Holocaust, for good and for ill, that I know of." - Rabbi Harold Kushner, When Bad Things Happen to Good People.
