In recognition of Mental Illness Awareness Week, West Virginia University at Parkersburg’s Psychology Club, with support from Student Counseling Services, will host a special showing of “In the Shadow of the Reich: Nazi Medicine. The documentary will be shown Wednesday, Oct. 9 at 11 a.m. in the college theatre. The event is free and open to the public.
The film documents medical involvement in racial theory, sterilization, euthanasia and unethical human experimentation, which eventually led to the participation in the “final solution” of genocide. Due to the nature of the subject matter, this film is for mature audiences only.
