About this title


“The Trials of Carrie Buck” is based upon the true story of a naïve, 16-year-old girl who is branded as “feebleminded” and put into an institution, where her captors petition for her medical sterilization, against the protests of an outraged nurse. Carrie ultimately becomes the subject of a landmark Supreme Court case. Carrie's story is shocking, thought-provoking and memorable due to its historic references to the thriving pre-World War II eugenics movement in the United States that argued, with calculated and chilling logic, that selective breeding and sterilization was a necessity if the human race was to survive.
