|Title:||Conspiracy in Paris, November 1938: Medical Fraud as Pretext for the 'Kristallnacht' Pogrom||Contributor(s):||Weisz, George M (author)||Publication Date:||2011||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/8261||Abstract:||This medical history essay claims that a medical fraud was committed by the authorities and was used as a pretext for the November 1938 anti-Jewish 'Kristallnacht' pogrom throughout the Third Reich. The suggested conspiracy covered up the real cause of death of the German Embassy's secretary in Paris. Baron Ernst vom Rath had been shot by a Jewish teenager who was frantic because of the plight of his family. A surgical analysis of the victim's injuries, and of the medical attention he received, suggests the likelihood of medical malpractice which led to his preventable demise.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||IMAJ - Israel Medical Association Journal, 13(5), p. 266-269||Publisher:||Israel Medical Association||Place of Publication:||Israel||ISSN:||0021-2180
