During the summer months, White Coats in the Ghetto: Jewish Medicine in Poland during the Holocaust – a research study by Dr. Miriam Offer, Senior Lecturer in the Holocaust Studies Program at Western Galilee College – was published in English. The book traces the work of the medical staff and leaders of the Warsaw ghetto during the Holocaust, and how they dealt with the professional, moral and logistical challenges in the fields of medicine and ethics, within a broad historical context.
