    Do the findings by the historian Herwig Czech about the life and works of Hans Asperger make him a Nazi or not?

    Should Asperger Syndrome be renamed as a result of the findings?

    He discovered the condition, so it will always be named after him. His political affiliations or wrongdoings won't change that.

    It's strange that there has only been one reply so far. The findings of Herwig Czech about the life and works of Hans Asperger being a potential Nazi was picked up by just about every media source on or shortly after 19 April 2018. The same couldn't be said about Lorna Wing, Uta Frith, and Tony Attwood when they published their milestone works about Asperger syndrome.

    I don't think that there has been any discussion about it on TSR although it has been potentially disturbing news for people and organisations which deal with Asperger Syndrome and autism.
