Fact of the Day: Handicapped Germany

One of the Holocaust's lesser known group of victims were people that were either mentally or physically handicapped. Anyone that was deemed "incurable" were not considered to be of any value to society. Since any of these people could come from any social class and ethnic group, Germans had protested the mass killings arguably more than any other group. Leading the Aktion T4 program to be more secretive (or just swept under the rug) than others.

My heart just breaks whenever I hear about stories of victims in the past. Especially during Hitler's time. But a good to know fact. I didn't know this before.
