Hitler, psychiatric patients and modern art: an untold chapter of German history. Charlie English passes on the tragic life stories of the artists in the Prinzhorn Collection who were diagnosed with schizophrenia and subjected to the Nazi extermination mania. With its gripping narrative and excellent research, it closes another gap in the reappraisal of the Nazi era.
