Forgotten Crimes: The Holocaust and People with Disabilities
Ivan R. Dee, 1 de ene. de 2004 - 201 páginas
Between 1939 and 1945 the Nazi regime systematically murdered hundreds of thousands of children and adults with disabilities as part of its "euthanasia" programs. These procedures were designed to eliminate all persons with disabilities who, according to Nazi ideology, threatened the health and purity of the German race.
Forgotten Crimes explores the development and workings of this nightmarish process, a relatively neglected aspect of the Holocaust, Suzanne E. Evans's account draws on the historical record as well as scores of exclusive interviews with disabled Holocaust survivors.
Ms. Evans provides portraits of the chief organizers and accomplices of the killing programs, and investigates the curious role of Switzerland's rarely discussed exclusionary immigration and racial eugenics policies.
Finally, Forgotten Crimes notes the inescapable implications of these Nazi medical practices for our present day controversies over eugenics, euthanasia, genetic engineering, medical experimentation, and rationed health care.
