The Selection Process 1938-1945

A selection process of who will die was implemented by the Nazi doctors as they too had to sign a document not signed by the patient..At first the patient had to agree but later he was not consulted. It wasn't the SS who corralled prisoners and killed them indiscriminately, it was the doctors who selected them on medical grounds (killing to heal) therefore it was legal. The SS bureaucracy wanted the slave prisoners to work; they did not want them dead. . History repeating itself.
