First Euthanasia Center Set Up by Nazis

Timeline of History

Political History

The first euthanasia center is set up by the Nazis. At first, people are simply shot, but over time the Nazis will create gas chambers disguised as showers. Between December 1939 and August 1941, around 50,000-60,000 Germans will be killed.

These experiences will be put to use later on by those charged with the extermination of Europe's Jews.
