In the early years of Nazi Germany, Hitler ordered the euthanasia program, codenamed Aktion T4, to eliminate those “unworthy of life”. The first series of murders were by starvation, then lethal injection before finally evolving to the gas chamber and cremation. Unlike in the concentration camps doctors, not soldiers, were put in charge of deciding those who were executed. Over 400,000 Germans were sterilized while just about 200,000 were exterminated for having various mental disabilities.

He was later put on trial, but because of so many Jewish witnesses stating his goodness to them, he was completely acquitted.
