"Unfit" people

1940年的今天,德国纳粹用了18天时间集中“清理”了1500名病人。这些人大多是精神病患者,被德国纳粹视为其意识形态不能接受的“不合适”人群。我弱弱地猜,这里的unfit大概也可以翻译为“低端”......

On this day in 1940, a “special unit” carries out its mission-and murders more than 1,500 hospital patients in East Prussia.

Mentally ill patients from throughout East Prussia had been transferred to the district of Soldau, also in East Prussia. A special military unit, basically a hit squad, carried out its agenda and killed the patients over an 18-day period, one small part of the larger Nazi program to exterminate everyone deemed “unfit” by its ideology. After the murders, the unit reported back to headquarters in Berlin that the patients had been “successfully evacuated.”

不仅如此,德国纳粹把罹患绝症的人和身体残障的人也归类为unfit people,分批统一加以清理。

同样是今天,只是在1881年,美国红十字会成立。

In Washington, D.C., humanitarians Clara Barton and Adolphus Solomons found the American National Red Cross, an organization established to provide humanitarian aid to victims of wars and natural disasters in congruence with the International Red Cross.

一个是魔鬼,一个是天使。人类的历史吊诡得很。
