Deadly Medicine: Creating the Master Race is a U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum exhibit currently hosted by University Libraries/USD in Vermillion. This exhibition of objects, photographs, documents and historic film footage from American and European collections highlight Nazi Germany's attraction for biological utopias and "applied biology" which ultimately destroyed six million Jews between 1933 and 1945.
The exhibition is on the second floor of the University Libraries in Vermillion and will be available until January 6th, 2013.
David Burrow, USD History professor and Holocaust scholar will present a lecture entitled: "Eugenics and the Nazi Conscience" on November 13 (from 3:00 - 4:00 p.m.) and November 15 (11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.) on the Second Floor of University Libraries. His lecture will illustrate how the Nazi regime worked to convince Germans that the regime's ideas on eugenics were ethical and how they reshaped morality in the Nazi mold.
