IN PSYCHIATRY History Always Repeats Itself.
30 Jan 2013
Watch the Excerpt
“If some doctors harm—torture rather than treat, murder the soul rather than minister the body—that is, in part, because society, through the state, asks them, and pays them, to do so.
”We saw it happen in Nazi Germany, and we hanged many of the doctors. We see it happen in the Soviet Union, and we denounce the doctors with righteous indignation. But when will we see that the same things are happening in the so-called free societies? When will we recognize—and publicly identify—the medical criminals among us?”
—Dr. Thomas Szasz, M.D.
Professor of Psychiatry Emeritus
We live in the very picture of a modern society.
Seemingly secure. Seemingly safe. Seemingly happy.
But life isn’t always as it appears.
Psychiatry’s history of atrocities can be found everywhere.
But nowhere can we see them more clearly than in psychiatry’s very birthplace—Germany.
Drawing from extensive research and interviews with psychiatric experts and victims, this shocking documentary reveals the sordid story of psychiatry from its earliest beginnings to present day.
It is a seldom-told tale of false claims, damaging treatments, and the ultimate in human cruelty.
The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) is a nonprofit mental health watchdog, Inspired from the Works of L. Ron Hubbard, responsible for helping to enact more than 150 laws protecting individuals from abusive or coercive practices.
