LECTURE "Until We Lose Track…"
The Implementation of Nazi Euthanasia Programmes in Styria
MMag.a Birgit Poier, historian and nursing scientist

People with disabilities, mentally ill people, and others who were considered abnormal and thus “of minor value” were deemed useless and thus both socially and economically unusable, “persons of public harm”. Moreover, within a strictly collectively oriented cost-benefit analysis, these people were considered economically useless and a financial burden for the “national community”.

The lecture will thematize the National Socialist killing programmes in the context of the psychiatric hospital “Am Feldhof” in Graz. After a general overview, the personal lives of individual victims will be traced.

COMMEMORATIVE WALK to a selection of the "Stumbling Stones" in Graz
conducted by Mag.a Daniela Grabe and Mag. David Kriebernegg (Association for the Culture of Remembrance in Graz) with the involvement of Raoul Narodoslavsky (descendant of Klementine Narodoslavsky, victim of the National Socialists´ so-called „Euthanasia-programme“).
