The Associated Press is reporting that Germany is building a memorial to all the victims of the T4 Nazi euthanasia program in Berlin.

The Associated Press article states:


BERLIN – Germany is building a memorial to about 300,000 people murdered by the Nazis because of mental and physical disabilities or chronic illness. 

Work on the memorial — a 100-foot (30 metre) long light-blue glass wall — began Monday. The memorial will be located in the centre of Berlin near the current home of the Berlin Philharmonic, on the site of the Nazi office that co-ordinated the so-called euthanasia program. 

Germany's state minister for culture, Bernd Neumann, said educating people about the crimes of the Nazis and honouring their victims remains an obligation for the country. 

In recent years, several victims' groups, among them the Jews, Roma and Sinti, and homosexuals, have had memorials dedicated to them in Berlin.

It is important to understand the history of the Nazi euthanasia program. Most people believe that what happened in Nazi Germany has little to no historical connection to the modern day pro-euthanasia ideology. 

The euthanasia philosophy came from the eugenics movement. In Germany, a book entitled: Permitting the Destruction of Life Unworthy of Life was written by Binding and Hoche and published in 1920. This book was the catalyst for the Nazi euthanasia program.

I have read Permitting the Destruction of Life Unworthy of Life several times. This book goes through a systematic explanation of why society should permit euthanasia and how it is more compassionate and better for society to kill people with disabilities or people who have chronic or terminal conditions.

Then read the Groningen Protocol. They are indeed the same.

Then read the report of the Royal Society of Canada.
