Eugenics is considered to be something that only happened in Germany," says Stoler-Liss. "Germany was indeed the most murderous manifestation of eugenics, but in fact it was a movement that attracted many followers. In every place it took on a unique, local aspect. It is interesting to note that both in Germany and in Israel a link was made between eugenics, health and nationalism."

That is so bizarre. I will never understand how thinking people can assume that sterilization is a morally right thing to do. I mean, for heaven's sake, we had laws like that in Canada in the 1930s and 1940s, and many otherwise intelligent people said it was perfectly fine, instead of asking the obvious question: "Is it the right thing to do?"
