WE REMEMBER!
ZACHOR ~ WE REMEMBER!

Today is Holocaust Memorial Day.

Here’s a film about the disabled victims of Aktion T4 in Italy.

Hitlers’ scheme was identical to Atos and the ‘Liverpool Care Pathway’ in that its goal was to cut spending by reducing the number of hospitalised patients by any means necessary.

This video explains the lies victims and their families were told about the ‘specialist treatment’ they would received at hospitals, where they were experimented on before being gassed.
