♿ Handicapped ♿

 Today, I read an interesting but yet disturbing article about how the handicap and mentally ill PEOPLE (innocent living breathing creatures who deserve to live) were treated in the holocaust. I did not like what I read at all. I don't know how people could be so cruel to all living things. I just don't understand. During the holocaust about 200,000 handicapped people were murdered between 1940 and 1945 in gas chambers. The holocaust lasted from 1933-1945. There was all sorts of cruelty especially toward Jews. They thought they were trash and I quote "The physically and mentally handicapped were viewed as "useless" to society, a threat to Aryan genetic purity, and, ultimately, unworthy of life." At the start of World War II people who were mentally retarded, handicapped, or mentally ill were targeted and killed. Now, that's what I call super unfair.
