Podcast Info

The RKI minds behind the podcast are the director of the museum at the RKI, Dr. Esther-Maria Antão, and the health scientist and medical historian Dr. Benjamin Kuntz, who has been working at the RKI for ten years and has already written several biographies about Jewish doctors who were persecuted during National Socialism in Germany. In November 2020, his biography on the doctor, scientist and Auschwitz survivor Lucie Adelsberger was published by Hentrich & Hentrich in the series “Jüdische Miniaturen”. Studying the life of Lucie Adelsberger, who also worked at the RKI from 1927 to 1933, basically provided the impetus for the podcast project.
