Werner Heyde, one of the main organizers of Nazi Germany's T-4 euthanasia program, is born. Heyde will be made responsible for creating the psychiatric and eugenic examinations used by concentration camps and the T-4 euthanasia officers.

He escapes after the war and takes on assumed identity which allows him to continue working as a psychiatrist. Friends and colleagues already know who he is, what he did, and the fact that he is a wanted war criminal. Nevertheless, they remain silent — even though he testifies as an expert witness in court cases. Once caught, he hangs himself rather than face justice in a court of law. None of his friends or colleagues are prosecuted for helping to conceal a war criminal.
