Deutsche Welle: German research organization to identify Nazi victims that ended up as brain slides

Deutsche Welle: German research organization to identify Nazi victims that ended up as brain slides. “The Nazis murdered about 300,000 people with mental illnesses. Some of the victims’ brains were handed over for research, and some are still held at German institutes. It’s time to identify the victims…. The researchers will try to identify the remains so that they can be properly buried. They sift through books and archives at the Max Planck institutes, as well as at hospitals and psychiatric wards, and the archives of any offices associated with the Nazi euthanasia program. They will collect all data in a new database, Czech says.”
