Herbert Weinert's 1934 pamphlet on "The Sterilization Law" also illustrates the spread of eugenics ideology among teachers of deaf children. Weinert welcomed the Law for the Prevention of Offspring with Hereditary Diseases as "the fulfillment of years of publicly stated proposals and wishes, above all from eugenicists." As proof that "the cadre of teachers of the deaf was and is interested in the problems of eugenics," he supplemented his essay with "an inventory of works on the theme of deafness and eugenics that have appeared in the professional press."
The titles in Weinert's bibliography (here in English translation) also show the extent of the dissemination of eugenic thought and its potential:
