When medicine sought a master race
The eugenics movement predated Nazi Germany, with Indiana becoming the first jurisdiction in the world to enact a eugenic sterilization law in 1907. The 1911 International Hygiene Exhibition at the German Hygiene Museum in Dresden included a display on human heredity and ideas to improve it. This promotional poster for the exhibit features the Enlightenment's all-seeing eye of God, adapted from the ancient Egyptian "Eye of Ra," symbolizing fitness or health.
