Quotes

"the nazi murders of disabled people are among the most inhumane acts of history" said Wowereit
"this is a day we have long awaited" Berlin Mayor Klaus Wowereit said before an audience of around 600 guests at the city's Philharmonie concert hall near the Tiergarten park
The activists "had to fight not only against forgetting but also against powerful opponents -- science organisations that denied any participation in the 'euthanasia' murders and protected scientists who became criminals" Wowereit said
"it's good that the city has internationalized itself, but it's also as important that the city remains livable" Wowereit said
