Ursula Radke was born on 12 February 1925. She was put into institutional care because of her epilepsy; from 1939 to 1941, she was a resident at 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, she was transferred – via the state institutions in Landsberg an der Warthe (Polish: Gorzów) and Teupitz – to the State Sana­torium and Mental Hospital in Bernburg on the River Saale. She was murdered there in the euthanasia programme’s killing centre on 5 August 1941.
