During World War II, a secret Nazi “euthanasia” program code-named T4 systematically murdered an estimated 250,000 people with mental and physical disabilities. Most were native-born Germans, and many were children. Patricia Heberer Rice of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum detailed the atrocities and perpetrators of T4. She focused on an institute in Hadamar, Germany, one of several facilities used for the mass murder of individuals the Nazis viewed as undesirable. The National World War II Museum in New Orleans hosted this online discussion and provided the video. close
