THE REMNANTS OF RACIAL HYGIENE Selective integration Ideologues and
technocrats projected alternative views of the past history of racial and eugenic
thought. Those working to link racial hygiene with popular anti- semitism and a
mass party glorified the volkisch tradition. This looked back to nineteenth-century
critics of liberalism, and linked biological racism, the cultural racism of Gobineau,
and the cultural pessimists like Lagarde. All were hailed as Vorkdmpfer - as
apostles of ...

»Erbkranke« hingegen wurden an Heirat und Familienbildung gehindert – nicht
zuletzt durch Zwangsmaßnahmen. Die gesamte Bevölkerung sollte nach ihrem »
Erbwert« erfasst werden. Mediziner wurden »rassenhygienisch geschult«. Den
abschätzigen Blick auf die »Minderwertigen« teilten viele Ärzte und

Every eugenics movement began with a loose network of men and women who
developed ideas, founded the early organizations, and attempted to establish
programs in a variety of scientific and social fields—with varying degrees of
