70,273

Between January 1940 and August 1941, 70,273 physically and mentally disabled people – men, women, teens, boys, and girls – were murdered by the Nazis. Though they never even laid eyes on the disabled person they were evaluating, the Nazi doctors read the medical files and, if from the words on the page, the person was deemed “unfit” or an “economic burden on society”, the doctor placed a red X at the bottom of the form. Three doctors were to read each medical file, and when two of them made a red X on the page, the disabled person’s fate was sealed. Most were murdered within hours.

The Aktion T4 Programme is the only death programme that bears Hitler’s signature, and it germinated from a letter that Hitler received from a farmer, asking for permission to kill his disabled son because he was ‘useless’. For Hitler it was an opportunity to dispense of individuals who were judged to be an economic burden, or unfit for Nazi society.  It also became the precursor of The Final Solution.

Join us on Monday 19th March 2018 at 6.30pm at St John’s as we launch this major Art Exhibition.

Opera Interlude

Opera Prelude Young Artist Amy Lyddon (mezzo-soprano) is joined by award-winning collaborative pianist Ian Tindale for a journey through longing, love and loss. Fauré’s sensual Cinq mélodies de Venise form the prelude to Jonathan Dove’s All You Who Sleep Tonight, a beautiful and haunting new cycle of poems by Vikram Seth. Schumann’s exquisite Frauenliebe und -leben tells of love through the female gaze, before songs by Roger Quilter and Eric Coates enchant with their lyrical charm.
‘Opera Prelude is a rare champion in its support of singers in the often difficult, transitional years, after their formal training is completed at Music College’
