The Nazi Doctors: Medical Killing and the Psychology of Genocide by Robert Jay Lifton
An Auschwitz survivor asked Lifton about the Nazi doctors, “Were they monsters when they did what they did? Or were they human beings?” Lifton turned to him and replied “They were and are men, which are my justification for studying them; and their behavior. Auschwitz itself was a product of specifically human ingenuity and cruelty. Neither brilliant nor stupid, neither inherently evil nor particularly ethically sensitive, they were by no means demonic figures, sadistic, fanatic, lusting to kill. They were people, if they were monsters they would be uninteresting; but the fact they were people makes it imperative we understand them.
“If we understand the past maybe now we can understand the future”
“It’s hard to look at these things, and that’s why we must look at these things.They unleash in us the feeling of shame: shame not because we were the perpetrators, but shame because we are the same species that perpetrated these crimes. If you feel uncomfortable, that’s good. For if we ever feel comfortable, if we ever feel easy, then something deeply and profoundly moral within our own humanity has been deeply shattered and lost.”… Michael Berenbaum Ph.D..
