A Fatal Impact: Eugenics, Social Darwinism, and Genocide


A Fatal Impact: Eugenics, Social Darwinism, and Genocide

During the 19th century, racial categorization took on a pseudoscientific stance. This program shows how the academic racism of the period helped to spread imperialist policies across the globe. Sifting through the “science” of eugenics and its link to social Darwinism, the film juxtaposes the racial hygiene theories of Robert Knox, Francis Galton, and Eugen Fischer with racial warfare in Tasmania, Victorian apathy in famine-wracked India, and—prefacing the Holocaust—horrific German colonization tactics in Namibia. Expert commentary comes from author David Dabydeen, Dr. Maria Misra of Oxford University, and Professor Catherine Hall of University College London. Contains graphic footage from concentration camps. Original BBC broadcast title: A Fatal Impact. (53 minutes

  2. Make sure title from the page has your keyword in it.
    If you don't find code that reads similar to this, ask your webmaster to place them in. Take part in forums, write articles, blogs (including 'blogger' that Google owns), maybe even purchase a link back in your web site.
