ABSTRACT
A reprint of the article "The Mystery Trip (Fahrt ins Blaue), 1946," by Alfred Döblin, published in the book "Autobiographischeschriften und letzte Aufzeichnungen" is presented. The author relates his experience of witnessing the killing of mentally ill patients by psychiatrists in an asylum during the Third Reich in Germany. He cites the condition of the asylum and notes that the relatives of patients who remained in the asylum for more than 5 years were not informed about the psychiatrists' decision concerning the patients.
