Between 1939 and 1945 an estimated 300,000 mentally ill and handicapped people were murdered in the German territory under the guise of "euthanasia". “Aktion T4” and “Aktion 14f13” are the best-known aspects of this policy. The article describes the history of the idea of “life unworthy of life”, its radical and cruel implementation during the time of National Socialism in the German Reich and in the occupied territories, differentiates the various forms of action of the “euthanasia” program, describes the perpetrators and their motives and tries to remember the murdered people.
