-- The UN General Assembly designated January 27—the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau—
as International Holocaust Remembrance Day. “On this annual day of commemoration, the UN urges every member state to honor the victims of the Nazi era and to develop educational programs to help prevent future genocides,” according to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s website. So it is that the Citizens Commission on Human Rights chose this day to present a special briefing on “The Men Behind Hitler,” which takes place at 5pm at the Nashville Church of Scientology.
“This will certainly be an education for those attending, but it’s time people looked at this,” says church pastor Rev. Brian Fesler, “Break time is over. Class is in session.”
The event will look at the atrocities committed in the early 1940s under the Nazi regime and show exactly whose ideas fueled Hitler and the Holocaust. As well, organizers say this event will expose how these same people continued their vicious legacy into today’s world.
CCHR has long been an advocate for human rights, especially as relates to patients’ rights in the field of mental health. Per the international CCHR website, cchr.org, “CCHR has long fought to restore basic inalienable human rights to the field of mental health, including, but not limited to, full informed consent regarding the medical legitimacy of psychiatric diagnosis, the risks of psychiatric treatments, the right to all available medical alternatives and the right to refuse any treatment considered harmful.”
CCHR is a non-profit, non-political, non-religious mental health watchdog. Its mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. CCHR receives reports about abuses in the field of mental health and is especially interested in situations where persons experienced abuse or damage due to a false diagnosis or unwanted and harmful psychiatric treatments, such as psychiatric drugs, electroshock (ECT) and electronic or magnetic brain stimulation (TMS). CCHR is often able to assist with filing complaints, and can work with a person’s attorney to further investigate the case. To contact CCHR Nashville for more information, visit cchrnashville.org.
