Abstract

Czech’s claims that my paper abounds with mistranslations, misrepresentations, and factual errors are refuted point-by-point, as is his declaration that the paper contains no relevant or new evidence. Asperger’s statements that Franz Hamburger saved him from the Gestapo are reaffirmed and supported with a personal communication from Asperger’s daughter, Dr. Maria Asperger Felder. Czech’s criticism of anonymous peer reviewers and his call for retraction of my paper are, at best, unconstructive. In light of the current resurgence of authoritarian governments that promote xenophobic and racist ideology in the United States, Europe, and elsewhere, it is essential that details about the Nazi euthanasia program continue to be recalled and deliberated, as they are in this exchange. I stand by my paper.
Voetnoten
1
Dr. Elga Wulfert, whose first language in German, kindly provided advice about my translation of Asperger’s 1938 article. I introduced the error when I did a last-minute check of the sentence in question after she had read and commented on the full translation.
 
2
Dr. Asperger Felder accompanied her personal communication with a statement notarized on May 17, 2019, which provides details about the five children’s recollections.
