abstract
Documents the horror of the Nazi regime with respect to its treatment of disabled people. Beginning with an overview of eugenics ideology, the filmmakers delve into the instruments of mass murder developed first on the bodies of people with disabilities and later transferred to concentration camps. The video provides a haunting glimpse into the medical and social mindset that led to the systematic slaughter of more than 270,000 disabled individuals during World War II. The documentary ultimately asks us to contemplate the impact of these events on our attitudes toward people with disabilities in our own era.
