Hugo Fechter was born in 1885. He lived in several sanatoriums, among others in the Samaritan Institutions Fürstenwalde/Spree in Ketschendorf. In the course of “Aktion T4”, a mass-murder campaign involving the involuntary euthanasia of sick and disabled people, he was transferred to the State Mental Hospital Görden in Brandenburg an der Havel. He was murdered there in the euthanasia programme’s killing centre on 31 August 1940.
