Tiergartenstraße 4, may look like an ordinary German address. But is an address which is synonymous to unspeakable evil.
It was the address of a villa in the Tiergarten or Zoo district in central Berlin.
But more then that it was the headquarters of the Nazi “euthanasia” program ,the mass murder of disabled people and others, code named Aktion T4.
An estimated 300,000 people with disabilities were killed as a result of the T4 Aktion program. The definition of disability was very loosely used by the Nazis. Even a political dissident could be marked as disabled.
What often is overlooked is that the authorizing of the euthanasia program was signed by Adolf Hitler and dated Sept. 1, 1939. The very same day as the Nazi regime invaded Poland.
Officially the program ended in August 1941 amid a welter of protests from many quarters of German society. But in reality the killing continued to the end of the war.
I am passionate about my site and I know you all like reading my blogs. I have been doing this at no cost and will continue to do so.
