The Nazi Extermination of the Disabled

I have mixed feelings about modern works of art being created about the Holocaust. The risk is so great that it becomes maudlin and cheapens the memory of the victims.

However, I think that addressing the fact that the Nazis started to perfect their extermination techniques by killing their own disabled children is actually an important fact to discuss-especially now that there are so many modern advocates (leftists) who prefer to either kill disabled children in utero, or provide fancy named murder programs for them if they make it out of the womb.

So, there is a new opera premiering in Vienna about this topic. I believe that it is something that not a lot of people know about, so this artistic foray into the topic is probably a good idea-as I said, if it's not cheap and maudlin.
