Dr. Hans Aperger changed Asperger’s classification to save children’s lives.

According to Doctor Asperger emphasized high functioning patients to keep them from the Nazi eugenics program that killed children.

It’s interesting here that Dr. Asperger was only concerned about his young patients ending up in Nazi hands if they were labelled  with Autism! And not another disorder! Why? Would the Nazi  eugenics machine ignore a handicapped child who was not labelled on the Spectrum? It’s something to think about.
