EVENT: Bernard-Henri LÚvy to discuss urgent humanitarian crises around the globe, Oct 31 at Wilshire Boulevard Temple.

Over the past fifty years, Bernard-Henri LÚvy has reported extensively on human rights abuses around the world. In 2020,áMonsieur LÚvy, traveled and reported from eight international hotspots ? in Nigeria; Syrian and Iraqi Kurdistan; Ukraine; Somalia; Bangladesh; Lesbos, Greece; Libya; and Afghanistaná? that have escaped global attention or active response.

In a deeply personal introduction to The Will to See, LÚvy recounts the intellectual journey that led him to advocacy, arguing that a truly humanist philosophy must necessarily lead to action in defense of the most vulnerable. In the second section, he reports on the eight investigative trips he undertook just before or during the coronavirus pandemic, from the massacred Christian villages in Nigeria to a dangerously fragile Afghanistan on the eve of the Taliban talks, from an anti-Semitic ambush in Libya to the overrun refugee camp on the island of Lesbos. Part manifesto, part missives from the field, this new book is a stirring rebuke to indifference and an exhortation to level our gaze at those most hidden from us.

Bernard-Henri LÚvy last spoke at Wilshire Boulevard Temple in January 2017.

Bernard-Henri LÚvyáis a philosopher, filmmaker, activist, and the author of over thirty books, includingáThe Virus in the Age of Madness. He is widely regarded as one of the West's most important public intellectuals.

Tom Teicholzáis an award-winning journalist and best-selling author, most recently of "Ivan of the Extermination Camp," and "9/12: The Epic Battle of the Ground Zero Responders" by William Groner and Tom Teicholz.
