Nazi "euthanasia" programs were designed to eliminate all persons with disabilities who, according to Nazi ideology, threatened the health and purity of the German race. Ms. Evans explores the development and workings of this relatively neglected aspect of the Holocaust, drawing on the historical record and scores of exclusive interviews with disabled survivors. She notes the inescapable implications of these Nazi medical practices for our present-day bioethical controversies. "An essential, unique and careful study of the Nazi euthanasia program."-John Weiss.
