The Nazi Doctors and the Nuremberg Code: Human Rights in Human Experimentation
Eds: George J. Annas, Michael A. Grodin; foreword by Elie Wiesel

Nuremberg. The name connotes medicine's darkest hours-and its brightest hope-the Nuremberg Code. Emerging from the dark era of Nazi experimentation, the Code was to humanize and standardize human experimentation. This promise, however, has not been realized. These essays focus on the Doctors' Trial, detailing the horrors of Nazi use of human Guinea pigs and how the Nuremberg Code developed from this nightmare. They describe the Code's relevance today, its failings in regulating modern scientific inquiry, and contrast it with the Declaration of Helsinki.
