Berlin Dedicates Holocaust Memorial for Disabled Victims

To the mournful strains of a single cello and tearful remembrances by family members, Germany Tuesday inaugurated a national memorial to the 300,000 ill and disabled people systematically murdered by the Nazis.

The site next to the Tiergarten park is the fourth and likely final major memorial in Berlin's city center to groups targeted in the Holocaust, following monuments dedicated over the last decade to Jewish, gay and Roma victims. It honors a long-neglected class of people with few vocal advocates in a move historians and relatives said was woefully overdue.
