ORIGINAL 1940 DEMEANING THIRD REICH PHOTO BOOK ON JEWS & MENTALLY ILL

ERBMASSE UND KRANKHEIT

SUBTITLED ‘HEREDITARY DISEASES AND HOW TO BATTLE THEM’

The 6 x 8-1/4 inch, 112-page softcover photo book in very nice condition by Dr. Gerhard Venzmer was published in 1940 by Franckh’che Verlagshandlung in Stuttgart. The author gives many examples how much more expensive it is to support a mentally ill individual (called ‘Idioten’ or idiots by the author) than it is to support a healthy (‘Aryan’) child. Of course, Jews fall into the same category for the author. It is obvious what the author means by ‘Bekämpfung erblicher Leiden’ (Battling hereditary diseases): the T4-Programm which meant the murder of every individual who does not meet the National Socialist norm and is a burden for the German society as well as the forced sterilization of those with hereditary diseases who were lucky enough not to get killed. A very interesting publication on how the views were back then in the Third Reich about racial purity and healthy genes.
