Exhibition: "Registered, persecuted, annihilated: The sick and disabled under National Socialism"

Exhibition (9-26 March 2018)

Registered, persecuted, annihilated: The sick and disabled under National Socialism

The travelling exhibition “registered, persecuted, annihilated: The sick and disabled under National Socialism” is on display at the Sydney Jewish Museum 9–26 March, 2018. The exhibition is hosted by the Sydney Jewish Museum in partnership with Sydney Health Ethics.
This part of history provides important points of reflection on areas in bioethics and human rights. This seminar is part of a program of public events to be held during the exhibition.

 

Exhibition overview

More than 400,000 people living with psychiatric illnesses, intellectual and physical disabilities were forcibly sterilised and more than 200,000 were murdered in Germany and occupied territories between 1933 and 1945. These crimes were perpetrated by the National Socialist state through the agency of medical, nursing and legal professionals.
Following on from the 2010 official apology for the crimes of psychiatrists under the National Socialist regime, the German Association for Psychiatry, Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics (DGPPN), in cooperation with the Foundation Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe and the Topography of Terror Foundation, developed an exhibition which focuses on this aspect of history. The exhibition was opened in the Deutscher Bundestag on 27 January 2014. Find more information: www.dgppn.de/exhibition
