Peter Avram Zuckerman: Humble Beginnings
As a Holocaust survivor, Peter was given the opportunity to emigrate to the United States when he was a child. Because he was an immigrant, he was only able to finish high school before taking on odd jobs in different companies. When the Korean War broke out in 1950, he was drafted into the U.S. Army as a legal immigrant, and was trained and sent to Germany as part of the occupation forces. Following his military service, he received the support he needed from the military to complete his education. Today, he is happily married and has created a family of his own; however, his experiences during the Holocaust prevent him from leading a normal life.
Valuable Research on the Human Condition
His experiences led Peter to conduct extensive research on the Holocaust, where he discovered that the cause of the genocide was an innate, human predisposition to violence against other humans. He published his research in Why the Holocaust?, which includes a chart summarizing the negative conditions that cause human devolution or decline. This alarming information opened his eyes to the possible extinction of society, which encouraged him to help incorporate the World Future Society™. By researching the past, present, and the future, preventive actions can be taken.
