The history of the Jewish Hospital Berlin is remarkable in that it was that it was the only Jewish organization in Germany that was permitted to operate throughout the Nazi years. In an exhibit curated by the Moses Mendelssohn Zentrum, Potsdam, LBI will present material from its own collections to provide an historical backdrop illuminating the role Jews played in the medical profession in Germany. The documents, photos, and objects on display document 250 years of social and medical history, from the times of Moses Mendelssohn to the 20th century. Included are Nobel Prize winners, such as Paul Ehrlich, and the first female physicians in Europe. Many of the items on display have never been shown before.
Cosponsored by the Leo Baeck Institute and Mount Sinai Hospital
October 1-19, 2007, at Mount Sinai Hospital, New York
