Warning: graphic footage.
The Warsaw Ghetto was a Nazi experiment in the use of Lethal Neglect as a
means of execution.
Most of the footage was filmed by the Nazis who sought to document the day-to-day decline in the health of residents walled off from the rest of the community.
The idea of lethal selection as a means of execution was an American idea, first described by Paul Popenoe and Roswell Hill Johnson in the 1918 handbook, Applied Eugenics.
This Memorial Day it’s important to remember the enemy: the enemy is racism, ignorance, intolerance, religious bigotry, lies, persecution, and murder.
The enemy is fascism, in all of its forms, wherever it emerges.
