Free Event

Humanity, NOT takes an in-depth look, in words and images, at the captured emotions of the victims, perpetrators, bystanders, and survivors of the Holocaust. Reading first hand horrifying experiences of the victims as well as some of the thoughts from philosophers and scholars, help us understand that; "Reaction to the Holocaust has to be other than mere horror and revulsion. It has to be more than empathy with the victims, sharing their fear and some part of their actual suffering." Dr. Babaknia has been on a national as well as international book tour promoting genocide awareness and prevention all around the globe.

Ari Babaknia is a Johns Hopkins trained Reproductive Endocrinologist and served as a Clinical Associate Professor at the School of Medicine, University of California in Irvine. His latest contribution in directing a team of researchers on Holocaust studies for the past 15 years, culminated in publication of a 4-volume ground breaking book about the Holocaust and other genocides of the last one hundred years, in Farsi (Wyman, 2012), for which he received the Reference Book of the Year award (2013) from the Association of the Jewish Libraries. Dr. Babaknia has served as the Chairman of the David S. Wyman Institute for the Holocaust Studies in Washington D.C. (2011-2013), as well as the Chairman of the Holocaust Remembrance Day of the Orange County, California Jewish Federation (1993-2013). He is the Founder of Memorah Foundation which its main mission is: spreading the truth about the Holocaust in the Middle East.
