In September 1939 Dr. Hans Schröder, head of the Sankt-Anna Klinik in Schwarzwald,
Germany, receives an order from Reichsleiter Bouhler and Dr. Karl Brandt to initiate the
so-called Euthanasia Programme, aiming at the elimination of mentally sick and debilitated
individuals within German psychiatric hospitals and sanatoriums. Dr. Schröder, fearing the
far-reaching ethical implications, tries to elude the authorities by only pretending to carry
out orders. His act is discovered. After interrogation at the Gestapo head quarters in the
beginning of 1940, he is sent to the eastern front to serve as a field physician. Following
the battle of Stalingrad he is reported missing in action. In May 1945, however, he
mysteriously reappears in Freiburg-im-Breisgau, visiting his wife, still living together with
their three children in the old house …
