Euthanasia

Nazi Euthanasia Propaganda Poster

This is a 1938 Nazi Euthanasia Propaganda Poster. Translated into English it reads:

60000 RM
this is what this person suffering from hereditary defects costs the Community of Germans during his lifetime
Fellow Citizen, that is your money, too
Read ‘[A] New People’
The monthly magazines of the Office for Race Politics of the NSDAP

If you’ve spent any time commenting on conservative and center right political websites, you’ve probably noticed that a corollary of Godwin’s Law was once used frequently—whoever first mentioned the Nazis or Hitler automatically lost the debate—because it was seen as emotional hyperbole resorted to when there was no longer any knowledge or reason to undergird an argument. Over the last year I’ve noticed that that accusation is made less and less due to the recognition of growing attitudes and beliefs increasingly reminiscent of the thinking of that era.
