Construction workers find hidden Nazi documents

Postby Hieldner » 2 years 11 months ago (Wed Aug 10, 2016 5:11 am)

Not a day without new discoveries about the Nazi period.

Construction workers discover Nazi files embedded in a wall


Construction workers have discovered files from the Nazi period embedded in a cavity in the former health authority in Erfurt. Researchers hope to gain new insights into the genetic and racial policies of the Nazis.

August 9, 2016

During renovation works in the former health authority in Erfurt, construction workers discovered piles of files from the Nazi period in mid-July. The find walled in a cavity includes index cards and folders of the office for “Genetic and Racial Hygiene,” said City Archives Director Antje Bauer on Tuesday.

Archivists and historians hope that the 10 shelf meters of files provide new discoveries regarding the exclusion and extermination program of the Nazis. Around 1933/34 such offices were set up in all health departments to record hereditary or mental diseases of whole families. Those were not isolated cases. The whole population is said to have been registered systematically regarding its genetic biology.

A red paper clip for congenital imbecility, a yellow for schizophrenia, pink for blindness, brown for deafness: The Erfurt Health Authority used these and four other tab headings to mark hereditary diseases and severe alcoholism on index cards, Bauer said. Then it was decided whether, for example, someone should be sterilized.

The aim of the Nazis is considered to have been to “cleanse the people’s body” and eradicate such diseases. The index cards contain about 2.300 names of people who were designated to be sterilized.

Files probably hidden away only in the 1950s

As of 1934 law enforced sterilizations “for the prevention of genetically diseased offspring” became possible. As of 1935 everyone everyone wishing to get married needed a “marriage certificate of fitness” of the health authority and was examined accordingly.

To what extent these documents were later used in the euthanasia program for the sick and disabled is still unknown, the curator of the memorial place Topf & Sons, Annegret Schüle, said. So far, there was one indication. Overall, however, only very little is known about the operation of the office for “Genetic and Racial Hygiene” in Erfurt. From a research in Frankfurt/Main it transpired that the genetic biology of one third of the population was monitored, the historian said.

“Wherever old and dirty files are found, we are called in,” Bauer said. The construction workers had reacted immediately and suspended their work. Documents from a later period in the find indicated that the files had been hidden only in the 1950s. Why and by whom is still unknown and is to be researched as well. The health department was located in the house in the Turnier alley since the First World War. Hidden documents have surfaced repeatedly in the past 25 years.

In 1926, Rabbi Morris D. Waldman advocated forced sterilization of "defectives" :
"Such education will, in the course of time, develop a public opinion strong enough to govern state action with regard to effective control of the unfit. If the medical profession were given the right to prescribe contraceptive methods and the authorities of institutions dealing with defectives were vested with power to perform sterilization, a great step will have been taken in the direction of effective birth control."
(Morris D. Waldman, "The Need for Birth Control", Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Service, December 1926, published in The Jewish Social Service Quarterly, Vol.3/no.2, p. 25-32.)

IOW, there is nothing in what they "found". But you gotta have "hope". :lol:

More nonsense to keep the gravy train running.

Anyway you can't read old documents with today's eyes anyway. It's not like the US didn't have their own programs that we would see today as barbaric. We used to lobotamize people. I feel like there is some need to make WW2 Germans look evil to make use look like saints or something.

...I guess you CAN do that, but that isn't good hermeneutics ;)

As pointed out state run eugenic efforts were a progressive idea. And it's not that far off the mark in theory, since problematic people tend to reproduce similar characters. It's even visible in children that were adopted at an early age. Questions would be how it's caused and transmitted.

The obsessive researchers are in this case are Germans paid for by public institutions. Not Americans. Of course their ulterior motives are similar to what Americans may have had as such. For starters they're sanctioning abortions of annually 100.000s of mostly healthy baby's positively by forcing ordinary people to pay for operation and consequences.

But apparently since the evil Nazis were against abortion that must be OK, so the rationale of the present regime there.

Pivotal in the advancement the New World Order agenda. If Globalism is to prevail, that means Nationalism(s) (i.e. Globalism's exact opposite) MUST be [depicted as] utterly evil. Just politics through deceptive terror. History writing & telling has always served the ruling elites by legitimizing their status, policies and agendas. Given the current rulers' agenda, no surprise every opponent to Globalism or every promoter of Nationalism is instantly labelled a nazi-who-wants-to-kill-six-million-Jews and so socially dead in the short term.

I agree. Adding anything would only detract from the well made point.
If you believe in the Holocaust, then you believe in torture.
