Movies, Videos & TV Shows About the Thalidomide Tragedy

Many movies, television shows and YouTube videos include pieces of the International thalidomide story. Some of them state that thalidomide was never approved for sale in the United States. A few mention the samples that were distributed by doctors in the United States. Even those that acknowledge the children born to mothers who took the sample medication quote the inaccurate number of 17 babies.

Although none of these fictional and documentary sources reported the full story of US Thalidomide Survivors, they do provide a foundational understanding of the families, doctors and nurses affected by the International tragedy.
