Breaking News

A German doctor who allegedly sent 900 children to a Nazi death camp has been given a top medical award.

Dr Hans-Joachim Sewering, 92, a former SS member, was honoured for “services to the nation’s health system”.

The doctor has always denied sending children to Eglfing-Haar, a facility south of Munich where it’s alleged physically and mentally handicapped children were killed.

Despite the allegations, Dr Sewering enjoyed a brilliant career and is a former head of Germany’s doctors’ association. The Nazis are known to have coerced doctors into reporting disabled patients during “Action T-4”.
