Psychiatry and the holocaust -a fascinating insight into how governments and nations can be driven insane

Intro by Steve Cook
I found this fascinating little article on the website of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights UK (CCHR UK).It gives an intriguing insight into the origins of the blight on humanity known as eugenics and the pseudoscientific claptrap that “justified” psychotic obsessions with “racial superiority” and racial hygiene, known modernly as “ethnic cleansing”.There is also a fascinating book on the subject of how psychiatry engineered the mass psychosis of Nazi Germany and the holocaust called “Psychiatrists, the Men Behind Hitle”, which you can find here.

CCHR have also produced a documentary on the subject which you can watch here .

It gives some insight into how governments and nations can be driven insane.

What I find fascinating and tragically ironic about all this is that the Zionist government of Israel, in my perception, appears to be dramatising – and has been dramatising since the end of WW2 – pretty much the same psychiatry-spawned concepts of racial superiority/inferiority, this time directed against the Palestinian people, along with its present full-blown ethnic cleansing.

The apparent similarity between the Nazi and Zionist mind-sets leads me to speculate as to whether there is a strong hidden influence of psychiatry upon the Zionist project.

We should not forget that the end result of the Psychiatric-Nazi  project was the total defeat and ruination of Nazi Germany.

Psychiatry of course corrupts and depraves everything it touches so if psychiatric influence over Zionism does exist, it needs to be spotted and removed before Israel too is turned into a benighted wasteland.

The connection between psychiatry and the Holocaust

Holocaust Memorial Day: In 1895, almost forty years before the Nazi party came to power, Swiss-German psychiatrist Alfred Ploetz, a proponent of the eugenics movement, published a host of materialistic theories about racial inferiority in The Fitness of Our Race and the Protection of the Weak. He propagated the concept of destroying unworthy life as “purely a healing treatment,” and coined the word Rassenhygiene (racial hygiene).

In 1905, Ploetz co-founded the Society for Racial Hygiene. The Nazi regime later credited Ploetz and his cohorts with having helped provide the “biological foundations” for the Nazi racial state. Psychiatrist Alfred Hoche’s 1920 book, Allowing the Destruction of Life Unworthy of Life: Its Measure and Form, demanded that euthanasia be conducted on “mental defectives.”

By 1932, psychiatry’s racial hygiene ideas had become scientific orthodoxy. It was taught in 26 separate courses in the medical faculties of most German universities all before Hitler came to power in 1933.

Another psychiatrist, Ernst Rüdin, who helped orchestrate the 1933 Sterilisation Laws of Nazi Germany, urged that psychiatry take a major role in purifying the race, which, he said, involved ensuring that genetically “defective” persons “shall not be able to propagate”. It was these texts and theories that fired Adolf Hitler’s mania to eradicate “unworthy” or “inferior” life.

Hitler had already had an encounter with psychiatry. Journalist Ron Rosenbaum related the details in The New Yorker. Hitler, blinded by a poison gas attack during the war, was admitted to a military hospital in 1918. There, psychiatrist Edmund Forster hypnotised him, placing him in a trance and suggestively implanted him with the idea that his beloved Germany needed him to recover his sight in order to serve the cause of national resurrection.

The first step in psychiatry’s eugenics master plan was the sterilisation and castration of those deemed “biologically unsound,” such as the mentally ill, intellectually handicapped, homosexuals and “coloured” people. Between 1934 and 1945, up to 350,000 people were sterilised. By 1940, “killing” centres using gas to exterminate mental patients were operating in German asylums. A year later, this euthanasia program was expanded into the concentration camps.

“The killing in the concentration camps went along the same lines and with the same registration forms as in the insane asylums,” noted one proud German psychiatrist.

Both Ploetz and Rüdin were honoured for their work In 1934 Rüdin became the first member of the Nazi party to receive its Golden Medal of Honor (Goldene Ehrehzeichen). In 1943, Hitler himself bestowed Rüdin with the title “Pioneer of Racial Hygiene.” Rüdin was ecstatic: “Only through the Führer did our dream of over 30 years, that of applying racial hygiene to society, become a reality”.

Incredibly, only four out of dozens of guilty Nazi psychiatrists were prosecuted at the 1946 Nuremberg trials. Most escaped justice, and many returned to psychiatric practise after the war. Some even occupied government positions again. Not until 1999 did German psychiatrists fully admit publicly that psychiatry had spawned “eugenics” and the racial “inferiority/superiority” ideology that had been poisoning the minds of the German people for almost three decades before the Nazis took power.
