Hadamar Autopsies

I refer readers to this excellent thesis paper by Madeline Schlesinger, which shows conclusively why the autopsies conducted by Major Bolker at Hadamar proved that the patients did not die of TB, and which also notes the key fact that Hadamar had no facilities for diagnosing and treating TB, such as X-ray machines and relevant drugs (p.19). Deaths were consistent with the poisonings described by defendants (p.44) and the morphine bottles found at the site (p.35). Furthermore, the paper cites (on p.40) the statement by Wahlmann suggesting that 200,000 was the initial death target for the T4 program, implying a calculation of 80,000,000 x 0.004 x 0.625.
