T4


On the road between Cologne and Frankfurt
The SS bus with painted over windows made its way
Through the streets of picturesque Hadamar

Poet's Notes about The Poem

T4 tells a horrible but true story. Hitler's Euthanasia Program is well documented by historians. I learned about it from Robert Jay Lifton's book, 'The Nazi Doctors: Medical Killing and the Psychology of Genocide' (New York: Basic Books,1986) , and 'The War Against the Jews: 1933-1945', by Lucy S. Dawidowich (New York: Bantam Books,1975) .
