A person's dignity should be inviolable.
This website is dedicated to all former institutionalized children who have passed away or driven to commit suicide. Human beings who never became vindicated by German government, church or society.
This website is dedicated to all former institutionalized children alive who still are burdened by their past of discrimination and injustice. Human beings who need help from professionals in order to keep their sanity, to find inner peace and freedom.
The fundamental human right did not apply to thousands of German Children, institutionalized by state and church after Nazi Germany's post war period.
We became isolated from society,stripped of our identity, personal will and freedom, violated on body and soul, malnourished and stigmatised, forced to labour without pay, deprived of education and the chance of future success in life. I was 16 when sent to a reformatory in 1959 where I was not permitted to talk for 3 years.
This is my story.
