Description:

DNAi location: Chronicle>In the Third Reich>"the final solution" In September 1939, Hitler attacked Poland. Sterilizations slowed nearly to a halt, likely because most people who fit the legal crtieria had already been sterilized. Acting on Hitler's suggestion that incurable mental patients "be granted mercy killing," a panel of psychiatrists and medical doctors completed a one-page questionnaire on each of 283,000 patients in mental hospitals throughout Germany. More than one-fourth of cases, those who were incurable or could not work, were marked with a "†" for death.
