William Holman Hunt, The Awakening Conscience
Fritz Kahn was a German doctor, educator, popular science writer, and information graphics pioneer whose brilliant work has all but fallen into oblivion. Chased out of Germany by the Nazis, who banned and burned his books, Kahn emigrated to Palestine, then France, and finally the United States to continue his life’s work. Though his achievements were numerous, the most notable was the development of creative visualizations to explain complex scientific ideas.
