Abstract

This problem-oriented article is based on two patient records of the Psychiatric Poliklinik in Zurich. It deals with the complexity of interpretations connected with sanctions like artificial abortion and sterilization of young women. The two examples of the 1930s and 40s illustrate how difficult it is to verify eugenic motivation. However, social, economic and moral factors could influence the psychiatric opinion. In addition, the article advocates the integral archival storage of individual patient records as a source for a differentiated
historiography of medicine.

Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
