Edwin Black Live Lecture and Film Screening

War Against the Weak, Eugenics and America's Campaign to Create a Master Race

Edwin Black, New York Times best-selling and international investigative author, will introduce his latest film, War Against the Weak, Eugenics and America's Campaign to Create a Master Race, based on his book of the same name.

In the first three decades of the 20th Century, American corporate philanthropy combined with prestigious academic fraud to create the pseudoscience eugenics that institutionalized race politics as national policy. The goal: create a superior, white, Nordic race and obliterate the viability of everyone else.

American corporate philanthropies launched a national campaign of ethnic cleansing in the United States, helped found and fund the Nazi eugenics of Hitler and Mengele--and then created the modern movement of "human genetics."

Discussion and book signing will follow film screening. Mr. Black will be introduced by Bruno Chaouat, director, Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies.

Thursday, October 7 at 6:30 p.m.
Sabes JCC 4330 S. Cedar Lake Road, Minneapolis, MN, 55416.
