Description The intention of this article is to treat scientifically the legal regulations of compulsory vasectomy in the Nazi Third Empire. These regulations were based on the Protection against Ancestors with an Inherited Defect Act from 1933 which had stated basic conditions on which an individual could have been sterilized. There were judges, attorneys and doctors who participated in compulsory vasectomies. The burden of decision making whether or not the vasectomy will be done, was placed on judges.
