Should the Nazi Research Data Be Cited
Hastings Center Report. 1984 Dec; 14(6): 5-7.
While the horror of the Nazi medical experiments has been unanimously acknowledged, debate continues over whether results of those experiments which are scientifically sound should be used and cited in publications and, by extension, over whether any ethically-suspect research should be cited or published. The author consulted persons in such diverse disciplines as medical journalism, Holocaust studies, and ethics, and found a range of opinions, including proponents of no editorial policy, total exclusion of data from unethical research, selective inclusion, and inclusion with disclaimers. She proposes that scientists use Nazi data only where the scientific validity is clear and there is no alternative source of information, and only with acknowledgement of the incomprehensible horror that produced them.
