Adolf Hitler orders the sterilization of the so-called "Rhineland Bastards," mixed-race children of German women and black soldiers from the French occupation forces. There is no law authorizing this, but Hitler's obsession with blood purity takes precedence.

There are only a few hundred, but Adolf Hitler believes they will pollute Germany if they aren't dealt with. In the end, most if not all will die in the Nazi death camps.
