    It’s a cold January in 1941 at a clinic for disabled children in Nazi Germany. But now, instead of helping them, the doctor is sending them off to their deaths. Much respected Bishop von Galen visits to challenge the state-supported program of murder with unpredictable results. Based on a real figure who successfully protested against the appalling policy of eugenics, this play asks profound questions about how we should value all people, whatever their disabilities or limitations.
