The New York Times has published a new essay by Goddard MFA faculty member Kenny Fries. “Before the ‘Final Solution’ There Was a ‘Test Killing’ commemorates the 80th anniversary of Aktion T4, the Nazi program that killed disabled people

In the essay, Kenny writes, “”Unlike the Holocaust, there are no T4 survivors. We know about T4 and its aftermath mainly through medical records and from the perpetrators. Aktion T4 does not have its Elie Wiesel or Primo Levi. That is the main reason I write about what happened to disabled people during the Third Reich.”
