Lethal Neglect, The Warsaw Ghetto

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.

 

A quote from an early 201th Century Eugenics advocate, Alexis Carrel, who says that the disabled should be executed.
From a December 2010 article in The New Statesman: When America believed in 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.

  1. Dear Rob,

    In case you were not already aware, I’ making sure, the word gets out that White Supremacist/ Nazi type groups are using VK (VKontakte). This is the Russian’s version of Facebook where it is almost impossible to get kicked off.

    Hugs, Gronda
