This is a groundbreaking exploration of disability in Germany - from the Weimar Republic to the fall of the Berlin Wall. ""Disability in Twentieth-Century German Culture"" examines Germany's most tragic and tumultuous century to reveal how central the notion of disability is to modern German cultural history. By examining a wide range of literary and visual depictions of disability, Carol Poore explores the contradictions of a nation renowned for its social services programs yet notorious for its history of compulsory sterilization and eugenic dogma. The book concludes with a brief memoir of the author's experiences in Germany as a person with a disability.
