Abstract This book addresses the topic of „special Children’s Wards“ from multiple per- spectives. „Special Children’s Wards“ were located in about 30 facilities mostly in psychiatric asylums In Nazi-controlled Europe, in which over 5,000 intellec- tually and physically disabled children and youths were killed. The editors were able to solicit experts with detailed knowledge of such „wards“ in Hamburg, Lüneburg, Stuttgart, Waldniel and Wiesloch, as well as a well-received exhibi- tion on „Euthanasia“ in Korbach. The editors also contributed chapters. Lutz Kaelber provides a comparative historical analysis of the culture and history of commemoration of Nazi „chil- dren’s euthanasia“ crimes in Germany, Austria, Poland, and the Czech Republic. Raimond Reiter addresses the issue of how proof of murder is established for the victims of „children’s euthanasia“ crimes, as well as trends in the memory land- scape of the victims of Nazi crimes in psychiatry. The book contains many pic- tures. Beyond those by the editors, contributions by the following authors are included: Andreas Babel, Udo Benzenhöfer, Marc Burlon, Frank Janzowski, Andreas Kinast, Karl-Horst Marquart, Wilhelm Völcker-Janssen and Wolfgang Werner.
