Between 1933-1937, during Nazi Germany, one of Adolf Hitler’s first acts was the Reichstag Fire Decree and Enabling act of 1933 which gave him legal dictatorship over Germany and allowed the pass of the Prevention of Hereditarily Diseased Offspring Law in July 1933. This law created over 200 eugenic courts that apprehended any patient with mental or physical disabilities as well as  mixed race children. Which lead Nazi Germany to perform sterilizations on 600,000 people.
