Belgium’s euthanasia doctor takes a tour of Auschwitz
For most of the world, a visit to the Auschwitz death camp is a stark reminder of mass murder, racial hatred, and the evils of eugenics. For Belgium's "Dr. Death," Wim Distelmans, who led a trip in November to the camp, it was "an inspiring venue for organizing a seminar and reflecting on these issues so that we can consider and clarify confusions," reports LifeSiteNews.
Approximately 70 people joined Distelmans in his five-day November tour. Most were Belgian medical professionals who work in euthanasia, including an activist described as "instrumental in introducing Belgium's euthanasia 12 years ago," Colette Vandevelde.
The tour, titled "Death with Dignity," has been heavily criticized by many across Europe, most especially by Jews. The group of euthanasia tourists defend themselves by saying that the evils of Auschwitz are actually the opposite of their goal, which they claim is to "kill out of humility and love."
Anti-euthanasia activist Alex Schadenberg told LifeSiteNews.com that Distelmans' visit to Auschwitz was a stark reminder of the eugenics movement's foundation in Nazi Germany.
