Medicine and Morality: Lessons from the Holocaust and COVID-19

Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and Chief Medical Advisor to US President Biden



Our mission is to show how understanding the social, political, and medical atrocities of the Holocaust are important, not simply as history nor solely to remember the victims, but because it can inform how we can and should act today to better the world. We believe that Holocaust education can serve to promote justice and tolerance, equality and human dignity, for all people. The goal of our programs is to empower people to promote ethical practice in all aspects of their lives.

Maimonides Institute for Medicine, Ethics and the Holocaust (MIMEH) is a nonprofit organization that uses the Holocaust as the historical framework for exploring current issues in medicine, ethics, and human rights. Since 2015, we have provided a unique approach that combines educational programming and advocacy to help create change agents who can impact society on a global level.


MIMEH is proud to announce our Generations of Change Initiative. Consistent with our mission, this new program will help empower the next generation by identifying leaders who are actively working to remember the past and protect the future by acting now. We will provide mentorship and guidance as these emerging scholars and activists develop programs that promote human dignity, health care reform, human rights endeavors, and ethical leadership.



The first program under the Generations of Change Initiative is entitled College Athletes for Respect and Equality (CARE).




Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, we couldn’t be physically together to commemorate Yom Hashoah. We asked people all over the world to virtually commemorate this day by printing our slogan.

In collaboration with the Davidson College basketball team, we were able to conduct a virtual reading of the names of Holocaust victims.

We are honored to announce the formation of the Department of Bioethics and the Holocaust of the International Chair of Bioethics - World Medical Association Cooperation Centre (formerly the UNESCO Chair of Bioethics), effective June 1, 2017. MIMEH will work closely with this Department to develop programs that further our joint objective of incorporating education regarding the relevance of bioethics and the Holocaust for modern scientific theory, medical practice, healthcare policy and human rights endeavors throughout the world.


MIMEH partnered with Davidson College and CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center for a life-changing trip to Auschwitz-Birkenau.
