This photo provided by the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum shows a photo that is part of the traveling U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum exhibit “Deadly Medicine: Creating the Master Race,” which will be at the National World War II Museum in New Orleans through mid-October. Killing “incurables” in Nazi Germany became policy in 1939, starting with children with birth defects. Between 1939 and 1945, Nazi doctors and nurses killed more than 5,000 children, according to the exhibit. A typed file card from the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Brain Research acknowledges receipt of 697 children's brains from one institution. (AP Photo/U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum) less
