People with disabilities

Nazi theories of “racial hygiene” argued that people with mental and physical disabilities were a threat to the supposed purity and superiority of the German racial community and a financial burden on the German state. The Nazi regime secretly murdered hundreds of thousands of people with disabilities during World War II in the "T-4" or "euthanasia" program, which became a model for the regime’s mass murder of Jews, Romani peoples, and others killed by gassing.
