In this talk, co-author of The First Into the Dark, Dr Michael Robertson will discuss the secretive euthanasia programs of the Nazi regime, in conversation with Museum Educator Lee-Anne Whitten.

Under the Nazi regime a secret program of ‘euthanasia’ was undertaken against the sick and disabled, known as Krankernmorde. Many complicit doctors, nurses, soldiers and bureaucrats would then perpetrate the Holocaust. From eyewitness accounts, records and case files, The First into the Dark narrates a history of the victims, perpetrators, opponents to and witnesses of the Krankenmorde, and reveals deeper implications for contemporary society: moral values and ethical challenges in end of life decisions, reproduction and contemporary genetics, disability and human rights, and in remembrance and atonement for the past.

A free e-copy of the book will be available for download in realtime for webinar participants.
