Chief among them was Ernst Rudin, a psychiatrist who played a major role in setting the stage for the Holocaust. Rudin was president of the International Federation of Eugenic Organizations and world leader of the eugenics movement which sought to remove “inferior” individuals from society by segregation, sterilization, or death in order to create a “better” race.

In 1916 he established the field of “psychiatric hereditary biology” which became “psychiatric genetics” in the 1930s, and which has subsequently been used to justify several efforts toward the mass destruction of unwanted ethnic groups.
In 1933 Rudin was chosen by Hitler’s Reich Ministry to lead Germany’s racial purity program. Rudin wasted no time in drafting the Nazi Sterilization Law which originally called for the sterilization of “schizophrenics,” “alcoholics,” and “manic-depressives” — the subjects of Rudin’s “research.” As these legal sterilizations began, programs were already underway to sterilize “black” Germans. The sterilization program expanded to include Jews, Gypsies and, in the words of Rudin, other “inferior race types.”
Rudin’s program led to the establishment of a pilot killing program at several of Germany’s psychiatric hospitals. The first to die were 375,000 mental patients. Rudin publicly praised Hitler for making his “more than thirty-year-old dream a reality” by imposing “racial hygiene” upon the German people.

At the conference, Dr. Ernst Rudin, the man responsible for Nazi Germany's sterilization program, was recognized with a medal and was elected President of the International Federation of Eugenics Societies (552).

When writing the Nazi's sterilization law entitled "For the Protection of German Blood and German Honor," Rudin relied heavily on the "Model Sterilization Law" drafted for the ERO by Laughlin (551).


This institute gave rise to the majority of Hitler's top racial hygienists, including Ernst Rudin. Rudin later directed Hitler's 'Racial Hygiene Society.'

Dr. Ernst Rüdin
One of the major figures in German psychiatry, genetics, and eugenics in the first half of the 20th century, Rüdin began his career in psychiatry in Munich.He amassed a vast collection of patient genealogies and concluded that mental disorders were genetic and could be predicted and averted through sterilization.In 1931, he became the director of the government-funded Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Psychiatry in Munich.Believing one of the key dangers facing Germany was the growing number of mentally "unfit," Rüdin helped draft the Nazi regime's sterilization law "for the Prevention of Genetically Diseased Offspring"and wrote its official commentary.
[POSTWAR CAREER] Claiming that he was a scientist and not a politician, Rudin was denazified and classified a nominal party member.
