Harry Reicher, leading human rights scholar, dies at age 66

Harry Reicher, Adjunct Professor of Law at the University of Pennsylvania Law School and one of Australia’s leading international law and taxation experts, died on October 27 at the age of 66. Professor Reicher was to speak for the Midwest Center for Holocaust Education on October 22 about the trial of the propagandists as the final presenter for State of Deception: The Power of Nazi Propaganda. The program was postponed for medical reasons, but we had hoped to reschedule when he recovered. MCHE Executive Director Jean Zeldin issued the following statement: “I am deeply saddened by the unexpected and untimely death of Harry Reicher, who was not only an esteemed barrister and Holocaust scholar and a leading advocate in the field of international human rights, but a dear colleague and friend.”

Professor Reicher spoke in Kansas City in 2010 as part of MCHE’s series for Deadly Medicine: Creating the Master Race.  A podcast of his 2010 presentation on the doctors’ trial at Nuremberg is available by clicking here.
