From 1933 to 1945, Hitler's Nazi regime attempted to realize its vision of a biologically healthy and ethnically homogeneous population through "racial hygiene" programs designed to cleanse German society of those perceived to threaten its biological health. This volume examines the critical role German physicians, scientists, public health officials, and academic experts played in supporting and implementing the Nazis' program of racial eugenics, which culminated in the Holocaust. Illustrated with many never-before-published photographs, images from rare Nazi publications, and historical artifacts, this volume presents essays by internationally recognized authorities that provide the wider contextual framework for a compelling visual and documentary exploration of the origins of the Holocaust. This publication accompanied the exhibition at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum which ranĀ from April 22, 2004, through October 16, 2005.
