In the year 2008
a former SS doctor accused of sending 900 sick children to their deaths under the Nazi euthanasia programme has been awarded a German medical association’s highest honour.
He was given the Guenther-Budelmann medal by the German Federation of Internal Medicine for “unequalled services in the cause of freedom of the practice and the independence of the medical profession and to the nation’s health system”.
Not in 1944. And while the former “axis” powers Germany (including annexed Austria) and Italy are among the best business partners of a State (Iran) which is planning and working for the extermination of the Jews.
