The First To Go, by Nabil Shaban.

Promo video for “The First To Go”  by  Nabil Shaban – an original theatre play about disabled people in Nazi Germany  Everyone knows about the millions of Jews who died in the Nazi extermination camps. Countless books, plays  and films have been produced to ensure that we never forget and so remain vigilant against any likely recurrence. Yet until Nabil Shaban decided to do something about it, there has never been a play or film which seeks to tell the story of Hitler’s Euthanasia program for disabled people.  In fact,  THE FIRST TO GO,  the First Victims, in Hitler’s systematic drive to purify the Aryan race were people with physical, sensory, mental and psychiatric disabilities. Gas chambers were originally created to speed up the culling of such unwanted “Useless Eaters”, the term used by Hitler to describe disabled people. Quoted from the link.
