Medicalization of hate

This post at Sociological Images discusses how Hitler deliberately chose to target Jews as part of his political strategy, and it goes on to discuss how his regime defined people as Jewish.

What I see is science and medicine used to define the limits of hatred. There's a photo of an "instrument for measuring facial features." It looks kinda like a pair of "body fat calipers."
