‘Do not forget you are a doctor’, a father impressed on his son when they were forced to say goodbye to each other, persecuted by the Nazis. The father referred to the privileges as well as the duties of a doctor. Jewish doctors were indeed privileged considering their relatively high chance of survival. Furthermore, it is shown that they often tried to fulfil their professional duties. Being thrown upon their own resources, they had to solve numerous new ethical dilemmas. They often tried to help others by using medical methods, however unorthodox, and offer resistance.
