Book Signing -- Anatomy of Malice: The Enigma of the Nazi War Criminals 
Sunday, February 5, at 3:00 pm

Join us this Sunday for a discussion and book signing by Dr. Joel Dimsdale, author of Anatomy of Malice: The Enigma of the Nazi War Criminals. Dr. Dimsdale, Distinguished Professor Emeritus and Research Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at UCSD, has written a gripping narrative that probes the psychological nature of four Nazi war criminals -- Robert Ley, Hermann Goering, Julius Streicher, and Rudolf Hess. Drawing on his decades of experience as a psychiatrist and the dramatic advances within psychiatry, psychology, and neuroscience since Nuremberg, Dr. Dimsdale looks anew at findings from interviews and tests of the war criminals conducted in 1945. Using increasingly precise diagnostic tools, he discovers a remarkably broad spectrum of pathology. Anatomy of Malice takes us on a complex and troubling quest to make sense of the most extreme evil.

"Anne Frank" Cast from Whittier Christian High School Visits Museum

Survivor Mary Bauer with Whittier Christian High School students

We welcomed  students from Whittier Christian High School in La Habra who are preparing to perform "The Diary of Anne Frank." The students toured the Museum's galleries and listened to Holocaust Survivor Mary Bauer describe her experiences as a teenager deported from her native Hungary to Auschwitz. The teacher reflected: "It was a life changing experience that none of us will ever forget. My students are more passionate than ever to put on our production of The Diary of Anne Frank as a reminder to our community to never forget what happened and never repeat it. They cannot stop talking about their experiences and are initiating some very meaningful conversations. A million thank yous to the entire staff!"
