Nazi Science, the Science of Death The Extermination of Jews, Gypsies and the Mentally Ill, from 1933 to 1945. Publication date : September 1, 1989

From 1933-1945, walled in by false certainties based on definitive "results", anthropologists and German psychiatrists directly organized the segregation, forced sterilization, and extermination of hundreds of thousands of "different" people: Jews and Tsiganes, as well as the mentally ill, retarded, handicapped, and those deemed to be asocial individuals. This thorough investigation by geneticist Benno Muller-Hill provokes serious thought on the moral responsibilities of intellectuals.
