Of course it's necessary to "separate" the word starvation from any notion of suffering - because then the monstrousness of what is being done is obvious. It's exactly what happened in the starvation killings of brain-impaired adults, Hugh Finn and Terry Schiavo. The killers assured everyone that starvation isn't painful but gives a feeling of "euphoria." The ones saying this, of course, always have the appearance of being very well fed.
Note the concern for WHO is suffering - not the victims, of course, but those "witnessing the emaciation" they inflict on the baby. This is the same attitude one hears at abortion conventions when they wring their hands over the pain inflicted on poor abortionists who have to feel the tearing and wrenching as they rip little bodies apart and the nursing staff who have to put the body back together to make sure everything has been removed. It gives them bad dreams, poor darlings. (Is your hankie soaked yet?)
In Eglfing-Haar...there was a children's division with a capacity of about 150 children called the Kinderhaus. This division had a special department" with twenty-five beds and cribs for the children about to be exterminated. In June, 1945, it was still occupied by twenty children. They were saved by the American Army. In the children's "special department" there was a small room. It was bare except for small white-tiled table. At the window was a geranium plant which was always carefully watered. Four or five times a month a psychiatrist and a nurse took a child
to this little room. A little while later they came out, alone.
