Hidden Holocaust: Aktion T4
The planned extermination of the disabled and ill
Aktion T4 was the name used for Nazi Germany’s euthanasia programme of its own citizens who suffered from mental or physical disabilities, under which doctors murdered thousands of people who were judged incurable “by critical medical examination”. All those unable to serve the Reich in the capacities of military duty, industrial manufacturing or the reproduction of children for future armies were considered a burden to the state and a drain on resources.
