The Nazis killed millions. Their justification was psychiatry and psychology’s theory of eugenics—that certain people were inferior and should be exterminated.CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, January 24, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The Florida chapter of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), invites you to join them for a seminar in remembrance of International Holocaust Day.
This event, to be held on January the 29th, will pay homage to the 6 million Jews and millions of others who died at the hands of the Nazis during World War II. Through the spoken word and art, these tragic events will be explored in remembrance of the courage and the lives of those who died while also offering discussion on solutions for peace and tolerance into the future.
Today, the Holocaust stands as the greatest admonition of psychiatry’s destructive nature, whose very ideals were forged in the villainy of experimentation, torture, and death. 
Offered for consideration will be the similarities between the devastating abuses of Hitler’s killing machine and the sanctioned but destructive actions of psychiatry today. Parallels will be drawn between the eugenics promoted by Hitler’s psychiatric “doctors", their theories of a master race, and their torturous shock treatments used for experimentation and punishment, and today how a version of these same “treatments", are used in the name of therapy.
“What we will celebrate,” says Diane Stein, president of CCHR in Florida, “is the human spirit, the determination to survive with grace and tolerance and the ability to recognize in the present the mistakes of the past so as to not repeat them. We hope this event will fortify in others the resolve to fight for human rights.”
This event will be hosted at the offices of CCHR Florida located at 109 N. Fort Harrison Avenue in downtown Clearwater on Sunday January 29th from 3:00-6:00. For more information or to reserve a seat, please call (727) 442-8820.
About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health. The Florida chapter of CCHR is an award-winning nonprofit in the area of mental health human rights and government relations. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969.
