Testimonies, articles, or books on Nazi medical atrocities written by physicians, whether Holocaust survivors or not and whether written during the Holocaust or just after 1945, are very important teaching materials. The professional views of physicians give special insight. In this review we highlighted a few biographical and eyewitness accounts by Jewish physicians about their medical activities and the inhuman medical activities of the Nazis. The activities of Jewish doctors in the ghettos and camps, including research projects on hunger or infectious diseases, are truly suitable case studies. We presented representative case studies that can be effectively introduced in medical school curricula.
