Nicky Clark On The Nazis And Disability
Nicky Clark has written a piece for today’s Independent about how Nazi treatment of disabled people is being ignored today.
I studied the Holocaust in history lessons as a teenager, and I can’t remember being taught any of this. Though I do remember my teacher telling me I would have been sent straight to the gas chambers because I couldn’t have done any physical work. I wasn’t surprised, but I wish she had told us even a sentence of everything I’ve learnt since about disablity during the Holocaust.
