Workshop:Eduard Pernkopf, MVCC, and the Nazis
Presented by: Aaron Fried
Location: IT216
Time: Wednesday, May 16, 2018 2:15-3:15pm
Max number of participants: 20

Several people who could not attend the original presentation asked for this reprise: During the 1930s and 40s, anatomists in NAZI occupied German territory were using unethical sources of bodies for research and education. During this period, Eduard Pernkopf created an atlas which has become controversial. While the A&P staff at MVCC was aware of the controversy, we were unaware that our lab had materials from those atlases. This presentation will describe the historical perspective of the atlases and describe how they ended up affecting ours. Part of this presentation will describe a recent global attempt to consider dealing with discovered remains from the holocaust era called the Vienna Protocol.
