Exhibition: "Sweep Them All away"
This exhibition is dedicated to the Jewish physicians that had their medical license revoked by the Nazi authorities in 1938. It shows the life stories of 20 physicians from South Germany that stand by way of example for thousands of others in the whole of the country. In 1933 approximately 8,000 Jewish doctors were practising in Germany.
The Chair of the National Socialist Association of German Physicians, Dr. Gerhard Wagner, in March 1933, he was referring to those doctors when he incited all German physicians to: "Sweep them all away, those who do not want to understand the signs of the time!" The medical community was only too willing to follow his words and fit in with the new regulations. Blow by blow the Jewish physicians were driven out of the community. Following the revocation of their medical licenses came the ban on Jews working as dentists, veterinarians or pharmacists on January 31, 1939.
The exhibition is shown at the auditorium during the congress.
