Róbert Fisch

As a Jewish man who survived Nazi concentration camps, Dr. Robert O. Fisch also participated in the revolution against Russian Communist suppression during his medical training in Budapest, Hungary. In 1956 he escaped to the United States and became an intern in 1957, and later a professor of pediatrics at the University of Minnesota. As a doctor of medicine he is known internationally for his clinical research on PKU, a genetic disorder.

He studied art in Budapest and Minnesota and has participated in numerous exhibits including a solo show at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. He has authored 4 books based on his life experiences and centering on the quest for freedom and is a frequent speaker on the subject.

He "has been a Jew during Fascism, a bourgeois under communism, a rebel defeated in revolution, a refugee among the free, a have-not amid plenty."

Having survived the two most oppressive totalitarian regimes of the 20th century Dr. Fisch has a fascinating story to tell. Please come and meet Robert Fisch, view his art and hear his story.
