Hitler's First Victims: The Nazi Euthanasia Program

Hitler's First Victims: The Nazi Euthanasia Program
Tuesday, June 12, 2018 at 7 p.m.
At the Museum

From 1939 to 1941, Hitler and the Nazis carried out what was essentially a rehearsal for their mass murder program. During these years, the Nazi Euthanasia Program targeted tens of thousands of mentally ill and physically disabled residents of Germany and German-annexed territories for forced sterilization and euthanasia. Dr. Beth Griech-Polelle will discuss this program and how it is critical to understanding how the Nazi regime developed the technology needed to murder large numbers of people in an efficient way.

Dr. Griech-Polelle is the Kurt Mayer Chair in Holocaust Studies in the Department of History at Pacific Lutheran University. She is the author of Anti-Semitism and the Holocaust: Language, Rhetoric, and Traditions of Hatred and Bishop von Galen: German Catholicism and National Socialism.

Free. RSVP required at Eventbrite.
