aging & the elderly

Because Nazi ideology held that a person’s worth was in their ability to work, the elderly were in an especially vulnerable position during World War II and the Holocaust. Aging is often accompanied by new health concerns and physical limitations, and elderly people had a lower chance of surviving the malnutrition, disease, and violence that many experienced under the Nazi regime.
