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.”
