      THE IMPOSSIBLE MEDICAL SCHOOL: WARSAW GHETTO ’43,” A TALK WITH DR. LEO GORDON

      Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust presents “The Impossible Medical School: Warsaw Ghetto ’43,” a compelling talk with Dr. Leo Gordon, Sunday, Feb. 23, at 4 p.m. at the museum.

      A largely unknown piece of Holocaust history, “The Impossible Medical School” is a story of educational risk, brave students and teachers, courage under siege, and medical resistance.

      Under the most extreme and dangerous conditions, physicians created a clandestine medical school within the walls of the Warsaw Ghetto. Dr. Gordon will describe the rationale behind this effort, the individuals who participated, and the environment surrounding this daring attempt at medical education.
      Leo A. Gordon, MD has served as Associate Director of Surgical Education and Medical Consultant to the Historical Conservancy of the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. He participated in the development of the medical center’s mural, Jewish Contributions to Medicine, as well as the display, The History of the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Gordon is a forty-year member of the surgical staff. He currently serves as Senior Consultant in Clinical Surgery at the Surgery Group of Los Angeles, a multi-specialty surgical group on the campus of the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

      Admission to both the film and the museum is free and an RSVP is required.

      Cost: Free -
