registered, persecuted, annihilated.

More than 400,000 people living with psychiatric illnesses, intellectual and physical disabilities were forcibly sterilised and more than half were murdered in Germany and occupied territories between 1933 and 1945. These crimes were perpetrated by the state through the agency of medical, nursing and legal professionals. This particular aspect of the Holocaust is little known or understood outside of academic circles.

This temporary exhibition coincides with Australian Holocaust Memorial Week (3 - 7 May 2021), and explores the many voices of doctors, nurses, politicians, and relatives of victims as they recount and reflect on the events and circumstances of those times.

Content warning - the exhibition, talks and films contain sensitive and distressing content that may not be suitable for people under 15 years.
