Galloway, N.J. – Stockton University will present “The Evolution of the Euthanasia Program,” which is part of an ongoing series of student presentations focusing on the Holocaust and genocide. The event will be held at 2 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 5, 2016 at the Manahawkin Instructional Site, located at 712 East Bay Ave. in Manahawkin, N.J.

The Nazi Euthanasia program operated from 1933 through 1945 and was one of the many strategic methods the Nazis created to murder anyone deemed undesirable. There were many factors that allowed the program to transpire including Operation T4 (medical killing), the lack of resistance from workers and initial secrecy of the murders. The presentation will take a glimpse at the roles of doctors and nurses in the program, eugenics and the Nazi definition of the word handicapped.

The presenter, Kiley Mabin, is  currently a junior at Stockton University and is  completing a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology with a desire to further pursue a doctorate in veterinary medicine after graduation. Her minor is Jewish Studies. She is the president of Stockton University’s Animal Friendly Organization and volunteers at a local therapeutic equestrian center.
