Suspected victims of Nazi euthanasia found in Austria

A construction project excavation in the disused grounds of a psychiatric hospital in Hall, Austria revealed the remains of possibly hundreds of mentally and physically disabled people murdered by the Nazis between 1942 and 1945.

The ghosts from those dark pages of our history still haunt us today, and quite rightly. I don't want to forget the depths into which men plunged in order to pursue a wicked and twisted ideology.

Those murdered thousands may now only be a footnote in history; but, they were once alive like us. They once had dreams, just like us; but unlike us their lives were stolen from them. Their futures became part of our history.

RIP all victims of man’s inhumanity to man...
