Theodore R. Reiff, M.D. to speak about German medicine and Nazi medical experiments

The CNU Department of History and the Genocide Studies Endowment will host a lecture by Theodore R. Reiff, M.D. on the subject of German medicine and Nazi medical experiments. The lecture will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 11, at 7 p.m. in McMurran Hall, Room 101. The lecture is open to the public and no reservation is required. 

Dr. Reiff is a retired Hampton physician and the founding president of the Genocide Education Project, a group of doctors, educators and religious leaders who have taken on the responsibility of remembering the lessons of history. The Genocide Education Project was founded in 1999 to alert the community of the consequences of genocide events. 

CNU sponsors educational programs and seminars to raise awareness about the horrors of genocide and the abuse of human rights worldwide. It also seeks to foster a universal respect for human rights and the dignity of all people and communities. This is made possible through the CNU Genocide Studies Endowment, a privately funded entity administered within CNU's Department of History in partnership with the Genocide Education Project, a 501(c)(3) organization. A Genocide Studies Endowment Committee manages the endowment's work.
