1941

Police Regiment South reports shooting 144 Jews. (Browning, 17)

1944

A circular by the German Ministry of Interior orders that
ill Ostarbeiter (forced laborers from the east) and Poles be
sent only to selected state hospitals, including several
hospital centers well-known for their killing of the
handicapped. They include Tiegenhof with jurisdiction over
the Wartheland, East and West Prussia, and Danzig;
Kaufbeueren for Bavaria; Mauer-Oehling for most of Austria;
and Hadamar for Hessen. Most of the Poles and other forced
laborers are suffering from tuberculosis and are thus unable
to work. Since it is too expensive to send them back to
Poland or other countries in the east and the advancing
Soviet army restricts German control over these areas, many
are killed at the hospitals in 1944 and 1945 by lethal
injection as part of the decentralization of the so-called
euthanasia program. (USHMM 1994, 58)
