Abstract

Between 1933 and 1945, German medical practitioners were easily persuaded to align themselves with Nazi ideology. Jewish urologists were forced out of academia, editorial boards of medical journals and medical practice. Like most German physicians, urologists quickly accepted their new role as caretakers of public health instead of individual patients' wellbeing. The specialty of urology profited from this collaboration with Nazi policies as it gained further independence.
