BERLIN.- A woman visits the exhibition In memory of the children at the Nazi Documentation Center Topography of Terror in Berlin, Germany. Over seventy years after the systematic extermination of physically and mentally handicapped individuals began in 1939/1940, this exhibition recollects this dark chapter, the child euthanasia program during the Nazi period. Under this program, medical crimes were perpetrated against sick and disabled persons in Germany, including children and teenagers, based on Nazi racial ideology. More than 5,000 children and teenagers were tortured and murdered in the Nazi childrens departments, institutions which were specially created for the purpose of extermination. The exhibition runs from 18 January to 20 May. EPA/MAURIZIO GAMBARINI.
