Nazi Euthanasia Propaganda Film
9 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film was made to justify the killing of disabled Germans in the so-called Nazi euthanasia program, properly known as Aktion T-4. It's not about choice. It's not about euthanasia. It's about marginalizing persons with disabilities -- and justifying their deaths in a murder machine which was the dry run for the Final Solution. The previous writer didn't mention this in his/her review. This "film" must be viewed and reviewed from its true historical perspective. There was no sort of moral "choice" involved in Aktion T-4.

I chose purposefully not to comment on content. The only reason to seek out this thing is for the study of Nazi propaganda -- and not very successful propaganda at that. And as Aktion T-4 and history proves, being "put to sleep" has nothing to do with disability rights or choice.
