Special Exhibition: 'Registered, persecuted, annihilated'

Published on: Tuesday, 13 November 2018 23:52

Registered, persecuted, annihilated: The Sick and Disabled under National Socialism

Between 1939 and 1945 the Nazis murdered 200,000 mentally ill or disabled people.  Deemed to be “life unworthy of life” these people were killed with the knowledge, approval and cooperation of bureaucrats, doctors, nurses, lawyers, health officials, administrators and families of the victims.  The moral issues raised in this exhibition remain profoundly disturbing and relevant to the treatment of those who are deemed to be “the other”.
