August marked the 65th anniversary of the Nuremberg Code, a set of research principles for ethical human experimentation resulting from war crimes trials in Nuremberg, Germany at the end of World War II. About 16 Nazis -- most of them physicians -- were given death sentences and imprisonment for medically focused war crimes.

As a subject of these experiments, Kor’s experiences are relevant to St. Cloud State master’s programs in Applied Clinical Research, Medical Technology Quality and Regulatory Affairs & Services. 

Kor also will share her war experiences and life story 6:30 p.m. Sept. 19, at The O’Shaughnessy Auditorium, St. Catherine University, St. Paul. Tickets are $12 for students and $17 for the general public. A book signing will follow. Tickets can be purchased at http://oshaughnessy.stkate.edu.

Both events are being presented by St. Cloud State's MedTech Industry Master of Science Degree programs and Center for Holocaust and Genocide Education, in collaboration with the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas.
