T4: Euthanizing of German Wounded on Eastern Front

Post by teddy » Tue Jul 14, 2009 7:28 pm

Dr. Robert J. Lifton in his book, THE NAZI DOCTORS: Medical Killing and the Psychology of Genocide, suggests that those doctors and others employed with the T4 Program were sent to the Eastern Front to euthanize severely wounded German soldiers(page 143). Was this common practise? Were there any records kept of those operations? Where can one find more information?
