Apart from having a distinguished career as a physician scientist and academic, Dr Aleksander Skotnicki has dedicated his life to illuminating the history of Polish-Jewish communities in Krakow, Poland. Dr. Skotnicki continues to bridge understanding between people of different nations, different religions, different occupations, different generations and different beliefs based on years of collections of facts, life experiences and arguments by listening to families who survived the Holocaust in Krakow, Poland. His tireless efforts in this regard have won him admiration in Poland, Israel and elsewhere, culminating in the Jan Karski Award in 2009.
With the tragic lessons of the Holocaust which led to the biggest tragedies and crimes in the history of mankind, it is more important than ever for history to not repeat itself and to listen. Dr. Skotnicki will be sharing the story of the modern young doctors, the research - decisive about the progress of the medicine - cannot be uncontrolled and be conducted without the permission and freedom of participation on the part of those taking part in them. Professor Skotnicki in his illustrated lecture will present slides of the Jewish community of Krakow, the tragic fate of its representatives during the German occupation, and the roads of rescue and hope by Polish neighbors as well as by the German entrepreneur Oskar Schindler.
