Under the Third Reich, the Nazi sterilization program included nonconsensual eugenics programs including compulsory sterilization under the 1933 Law for the Protection of Hereditary Health, as well as the Nazi sterilization experiments in concentration camps. The early programs did involve often quick decisions about individuals, but the latter camp projects simply used human subjects to experiment with mass sterilization techniques. The Nazi euthanasia program complemented it.
