April 8 – “Personal DNA testing to better understand yourself,” by George McKinney

In the last year, over four million people have had their DNA tested, and the number is growing rapidly. Are you Irish, Italian or Native American? Are you adopted and looking for your biological family? What medical conditions might you have inherited? This presentation by Dr. George McKinney will describe how the testing is possible, the type of testing that is done, what companies do these tests, and what typical results are.

April 15 – “Heroism in the Holocaust: Gentiles, Jews and Stealth Altruism,” by Art Shostak

We all are familiar with the horror story of the Holocaust. Less well known is the Help Story, what victims and their sympathizers did for less fortunate others. Israel honors over 25,000 Europeans as “Righteous among the Gentiles” and adds new ones yearly for their high-risk altruistic efforts to save Jewish lives. Dr. Art Shostak’s talk will salute the righteous Gentiles and their unsung stealth altruism.
