Germany to open memorial to Nazis' disabled victims

Germany will inaugurate the first national memorial to the estimated 300,000 ill and disabled people systematically murdered by the Nazis on Tuesday, at a ceremony with victims’ relatives. The site next to the Tiergarten park is the fourth and likely final major memorial in Berlin’s city centre to groups targeted in the Holocaust, following monuments dedicated over the last decade to Jewish, gay and Roma victims. Uwe Neumaerker, director of the Holocaust memorial foundation in Berlin, said the slaughter of patients and residents of care homes marked “the first systematic mass crime of the National Socialist regime”. The German parliament voted in November 2011 to erect a memorial to the victims of the Nazis’ cynically labelled “euthanasia” programme adjacent to Berlin’s renowned Philharmonie concert hall.
