About this title

Synopsis:

The Holocaust inflicted enormous trauma on the deaf people of Europe. Beginning in 1933, deaf people were forcibly sterilized. In 1939, Hitler began his secret T-4 campaign, murdering a quarter-million people who were disabled, many of them deaf. In 1941, the deliberate killing of disabled people ended, but deaf people who were Jewish continued to be sent to Nazi concentration camps, where they were either gassed or worked to death. At a time when the few courageous survivors are aging into their 80s and 90s, this book honors them and tells their stories. It commemorates a past that can never be forgotten.

Review:

The Nazi mass murder started with the experimental killings of the handicapped. The policy could be repeated again and again. -- Rabbi Irving Greenberg, Afterword

The Nazis believed in distinguishing among levels of life. Some forms deserved full respect while others were "inferior," "degraded," "unworthy." -- Rabbi Irving Greenberg

The techniques for killing eventually used in the camps were developed for killing the disabled in hopsitals and other places. -- John Schuchman, Carol Reich Forum
