CALGARY, Alberta - March 10, 2016 - PRLog -- Award-winning, New York Times bestselling investigative author Edwin Black will be a Special Guest Speaker at the National Privacy & Data Governance Congress in Calgary, Alberta on April 1, 2016.

Black will present a compelling presentation that revolves around his global bestseller, “War Against the Weak,” which is now a feature-length documentary of the same name. Black’s investigative chronicle digs into how American corporate philanthropies helped fund the Nazi eugenics experiments of Adolf Hitler and “The Angel of Death,” Dr. Josef Mengele.

Black will explore the indisputable connections between the early 20th century campaign for ethnic cleansing across the United States and modern‑day genetic practices.

According to Dr. Haim Shaked, professor of International Studies at the University of Miami, “this is an important story that must be told and remembered in every generation so that it never happens again.”

Edwin Black has been nominated for 11 Pulitzer Prizes, received numerous editorial awards, and has more than 1.2 million books in print in more than 14 languages in more than 65 countries. The majority of his works focus on human rights, genocide and hate, as well as corporate criminality and corruption, governmental misconduct, philanthropic abuse and historical investigation.

The keynote presentation will be held during the National Privacy and Governance Congress in Calgary, Alberta — March 30 to April 1, 2016. Details at pacc-ccap.ca/congress-2
