"America's eugenicists even encouraged Nazi Germany in its massive sterilisation of the mentally ill, a program that led directly to crematoriums of the Holocaust." 

Sir Francis Galton wanted to "breed more desirable...domestic animals through careful breeding practices...applied to humans..."

"...[Galton] wondered, 'Could not the race of men be similarly improved?  Could not the undesirables be got rid of and the desirables multiplied?"
