Commemorative Book for the Munich Victims of the National Socialist “Euthanasia” Murders


Between 1939 and 1945, around 300,000 people suffering from mental illness and disabilities were murdered in the Nazis’ ‘euthanasia’ campaigns, among them more than 2000 citizens of Munich. A commemorative book for the victims of the Nazi murders of patients compiled jointly by the working group ‘Psychiatry and Welfare under National Socialism in Munich’, the Munich Documentation Centre for the History of National Socialism and the government of Upper Bavaria will be published by Wallstein Verlag in June 2018. The book pays tribute to the victims, listing their names and biographical data. After a long period of silence, the memory of these murdered people has thus become part of the City of Munich’s collective memory. The historical context and the repercussions of the Nazi ‘euthanasia’ murders in Munich and Upper Bavaria are described in detail.

The book will be published by Wallstein Verlag and presented at the NS-Dokumentationszentrum München on 2 July at 7 pm.
