Mass Murder of People with Disabilities and the Holocaust



On 26 November 2017, the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance will hold a conference in Bern, Switzerland, on the topic of the murder of people with disabilities and the Holocaust together with the Paedagogische Hochschule Bern and the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs of Switzerland.

The conference will focus on two Nazi operations to kill people with disabilities or illnesses: the “Aktion T4", the Nazi Euthanasia program, and the Aktion “14 f 13”, the murder of concentration camp inmates categorized as sick and no longer able to work.

The IHRA conference aims to bring new research on occupied Eastern and Western Europe together in one place to provide a fuller picture of the murder of people with disabilities and will focus on continuities of methods and perpetrators. The main target groups of the conference are IHRA delegates, as well as academics working in the field, and journalists.

For more information and the draft programme, please consult the conference flyer.

Registration closes on 3 November 2017 and interested participants can register online with the following registration link.. Please note that registrations are only final once confirmed by the organisers.
