Scientology Network’s VOICES FOR HUMANITY, the weekly series presenting heroic change makers from a variety of faiths, cultures and nations, working to uplift their communities, announces a new episode featuring the work of German activists Bernd Trepping & Nicola Cramer, who battle psychiatric abuse, on January 8, 2020.
VOICES FOR HUMANITY airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Scientology Network.
In Nazi Germany, psychiatrists were the pioneers of the mass murder that would come to be the Holocaust. Proof that those who do not learn from history are condemned to repeat it, in Germany today, more than 2,500 psychiatric patients died in a single year. Husband-and-wife activists Bernd Trepping and Nicola Cramer courageously take on the powerful vested interests of the psychiatric industry in the country where it all began, exposing its past crimes to stem its present-day corruption.
A native German who grew up in Bavaria, Bernd Trepping came to activism at an early age, organizing his first march in school to protest the retrofit of nuclear bombs in Germany. Later, he took a keen interest in investigating the history of Germany’s horrific human rights record, uncovering how psychiatrists played the leading role in creating programs to exterminate those deemed “unfit” for society—a discriminatory and brutal philosophy furthered by the Nazis. Bernd went on to join forces with international psychiatric watchdog group Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), becoming the president of the German chapter.
Nicola Cramer was also born in Germany and became an advocate against injustice at an early age. She describes herself as having an “innate sense of fairness.” She joined CCHR Germany, where she met her future husband, Bernd Trepping. Together, they helped get published the groundbreaking Psychiatrists—The Men Behind Hitler. Leading CCHR Germany for 25 years, Bernd and Nicola have not only exposed the horrors of psychiatry’s history, but have also educated tens of thousands on the psychiatric industry’s current criminal practices.
