The Museum of Jewish Heritage and Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics (FASPE) are pleased to co-present this book launch. Mengele: Unmasking the Angel of Death by former Museum of Jewish Heritage Director David G. Marwell describes the notorious war criminal’s training and early promise as a scientist; his wartime service in combat and at Auschwitz; and his postwar refuge in Germany and South America. It chronicles the international search for Mengele in 1985 that ended in a cemetery in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and the dogged forensic investigation that eventually confirmed his death. Marwell will be in conversation with Thorsten Wagner, Executive Director, Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics (FASPE).

Free; advance registration recommended


Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics (FASPE) studies the perpetrators – the professionals who were leaders in their communities – in Nazi Germany. If we can know them better, if we can understand what motivated them, we can better understand ourselves and how to avoid falling into ethical lapses, large and small. With that knowledge, we learn how we should act as professionals, as ethical leaders in our communities.
