Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0967769752, Paperback)The Holocaust inflicted enormous trauma on the deaf people of Europe. Beginning in 1933, deaf people were forcibly sterilized. In 1939, Hitler began his secret T-4 campaign, murdering a quarter-million people who were disabled, many of them deaf. In 1941, the deliberate killing of disabled people ended, but deaf people who were Jewish continued to be sent to Nazi concentration camps, where they were either gassed or worked to death. At a time when the few courageous survivors are aging into their 80s and 90s, this book honors them and tells their stories. It commemorates a past that can never be forgotten.
