Professor Tim Mant will discuss the work of his father, Professor A Keith Mant, a British forensic pathologist who headed the Special Medical Section of the British Army’s War Crimes Group, for which he interviewed members of the SS and those suspected of carrying out medical experiments, in particular, in Ravensbrück concentration camp. Based on his father’s posthumous autobiography completed by his grandson, Daniel Mant, Tim Mant will discuss the impact his father’s investigation of the Nazi doctors’ “experiments” had on the criminalisation of unethical medical experimentation and the subsequent Nuremberg Code.
