Since Asperger described his patients in kind ways, such as "little professors", does it mean he did NOT send the high functioning ones to Nazis and only sent the low functioning ones? As in, he got rid of low functioning patients (by sending them to Nazis) and then was quite fond of the ones that were left (whom he called little professors)? Or did he, in fact, send one of his "little professors" to Nazis, as well?

He was following Nazi philosophy. “Mildly” disabled were not sent to thier deaths. There were blind and deaf chapters of Hitler youth. It was all about if a person was believed to be able to contribute to the volk. Feelings had nothing to do with it.
