German surgeon, proponents of euthanasia and author of many books. Dr. Julius Hackethal dominated German Tabloids. He created a video in 1984 where he gave a patient a cup with poison so she could die in dignity. Unlike Dr. Kevorkian Hackethal was not convicted of second degree murder since the patient took the cup filled with poison herself and drank it. Hackethal also admitted of giving Euthanasia to this own mother to end her suffering. Hackethal compared cancers with Household pets and believed that surgeries and chemo-therapies turn those Household pets into predators killing the patients. Unfortunately Hackethal fell victim to his own theory and died of untreated lung cancer on 17 October 1997.
