Did You Know…?

..before WWII the Nazi government had laws to sterilize people, on the books July 14, 1933?  Called the “Law for Prevention of Genetically Diseased Offspring.”  Included were deafness, Epilepsy, blindness, mental deficiency and physical deformity of any kind.

Compulsory sterilization was at the discretion of the “Genetic Health Court” with “use of force permissible.”  By the end of WWII over 200 “Genetic Health Courts” were created and over 400,000 people were sterilized against their will.

If determined to not meet the health requirements of the Aryan standards, the Nazi phrase description was, “Life unworthy of life.”
