Nazi “Euthanasia” Was Precedent for Holocaust

Posted in the interests of open debate. We explain our reservations in the footnote. Ed.

On the same day that Germany invaded Poland, Hitler issued “Action T4″ which ordered the Nazis to exterminate mentally handicapped Germans in gas chambers. This became a template for the extermination of entire races, like Slavs and Jews.

The “euthanasia decree”, written on Adolf Hitler’s personal stationery and dated 1 September 1939, reads as follows:

“Reich Leader Bouhler and Dr. Brandt are charged with the responsibility for expanding the authority of physicians, to be designated by name, to the end that patients considered incurable according to the best available human judgment [menschlichem Ermessen] of their state of health, can be granted a mercy death [Gnadentod].”

As early as July 1933, Hitler created a law for the “Prevention of Hereditarily Diseased Offspring” which prescribed sterilization for citizens with undesirable conditions.

Around 360,000 people were practically castrated between 1933 to 1939. Hitler wanted to extend this policy to extermination because, with war coming, room was needed for wounded soldiers. In the Führer’s eyes, the mentally handicapped were a costly nuisance just taking up space.

Hitler and his cronies knew that killing wouldn’t go over very well, especially with reference to children. So Goebbels promoted the ideals of euthanasia. They produced leaflets, posters, and even films pointing out how much it cost to maintain asylums for incurable and insane patients. The film “The Victim of the Past” (Opfer der Vergangenheit) was given a major premiere in Berlin and shown in all cinemas.

Under Action T4 the Nazis could easily murder Aryans that were considered genetically or otherwise unfit. This included people who suffered from alcoholism, schizophrenia, epilepsy, Huntington’s chorea and even imbecility.

Some would even be killed or sterilized for “social deviance,” for example, criminals. They would go door to door looking for the unfit, concentrating on nursing homes, asylums, prisons, aged care homes, and even “special schools.”

Hitler knew that desensitizing an entire population would allow him to implement more severe policies.

OPPOSITION INEFFECTIVE

Clemens August von Galen,the Bishop of Munster pressured Hitler to halt the euthanasia program in late August 1941, but that didn’t stop the killing.

Say one of “your” children has epilepsy or Down syndrome. Then one day a Nazi physician comes to your home and says he was from the “Gemeinnützige Stiftung für Heil- und Anstaltspflege”, which literally translates to “The Charitable Foundation for Cure and Institutional care”, and they were going to send your child to a “special sections” for children. They would receive special care geared towards their illness so they could improve their condition.

Then they would kill the children but later say that they died of pneumonia. Not by malnutrition, medical overdose or by “Action T4′s” preferred method of racial hygiene… rounding up the undesirables into a cramped gas chamber. You may know they are lying, but there is nothing you can do about it.

According to calculations made in the 1990s, the number of people “murdered” at the six main gassing facilities at 300,000. 70,273 were killed in the first year “after” Hitler “called a halt” to the program.

“As well as killing patients from mental homes, nursing homes and sanatoria, these centres were also used to kill prisoners transferred from concentration camps in Germany and Austria.” (Wikipedia)

Comment – August 27, 2010


As we said in the introduction: we have doubts about whether the Nazis “gassed” anyone during the Holocaust. This is not to say that atrocities didn’t occur. They did but as they say: the devil is in the detail.

In other words precisely how many died and exactly how they died has still not been firmly established.

The fact is that gas chambers such as at Auschwitz were constructed after the end of WWII, supposedly as a memorial.

Or to quote Jeff Prager from ‘Jew Puts Holocaust on Trial’:

“The plaque on display at the Auschwitz camp until 1989 noted “4 million” victims. The plaque currently on display at Auschwitz (2002) was suddenly reduced and the number of victims is now 1.5 million – a casual reduction in the number of deaths by 2.5 million that never appeared in the American “free press.”

Nonetheless, despite that reduction of 2.5 million deaths the figure of six million still remains. Virtually becoming an unquestioned icon.

It is because there is so much at stake, politically and financially, in the ‘Holocaust’ that we should question it. Because in the end analysis, Zionists are turning the ‘Shoah’, or ‘sacrifice’ in english, into halloed grounds for their own political and economic ends. Ed.
