"The first mass-murder by the Nazis was organized from 1940 onwards on this spot, the Tiergartenstraße 4 and named "Aktion T4" after this address.
From 1939 to 1945 almost 200,000 helpless people were killed. Their lives were termed "unworthy of living", their murder called "euthanasia". They died in the gas chambers of Grafeneck, Brandenburg, Hartheim, Pirna, Bernburg and Hadamar, they died by execution squad, by planned hunger and poisoning.
The perpetrators were scholars, doctors, nurses, justice officials, the police and the health and workers’ administration. The victims were poor, desperate, rebellious or in need of help. They came from psychiatric clinics and children's hospitals, from old age homes and welfare institutions, from military hospitals and internment camps.
The number of victims is huge, the number of offenders who were sentenced, small.
This dance is a cry out to God for mercy to our people. In Berlin at this monument this dance was dedicated to Germany; crying out for the shedding of blood that was done there. Dancing with the Israeli flag in Berlin was deeply meaningful to me as a Jew; it was also a statement that we in "Abundant Life ministry" do not agree in any way with "Mercy Killing".
We believe in the sanctity of life and identify with the words of Job 1:21 "...the Lord gave (life) and the Lord has taken (life) away; blessed be the name of the Lord." We as human beings do not have any right to take life. Our life belongs to God.
