Henning Atrott, also Hans Atrott, (born 12 January 1944 in
is notable for his commitment in worldwide right-to-die movement and as a critic
He can find himself on multiple websites, some of which consider
him a major contributor to the philosophy of human history.
Hans Atrott studied
philosophy, sociology (of medicine) and political science.
He commits himself to social justice and equates writing to
composing a symphony as there is nothing difficult or easy about the
process. The end result is what is important.
Born in Klaipéda, Lithuania, during the end of World War II, Hans
was a victim of the Nazi invasion. His parents died during the war, and due
to the German invasion in his country, he was thereafter considered German
when they evacuated his homeland and forced him to go to Germany.
Rebelling against forced political and religious ideals, Hans began
a life in search of truth that led him to banishment from a German
university after rejecting Christianity. Having studied philosophy and
political science, eventually becoming one of the first people to support
voluntary euthanasia. He worked with many prominent medical professionals to
advance the social importance of the right-to-die movement.
Originally, he planned to make his career in science, but his social
and religious beliefs prevented him from moving forward with it. Instead,
Hans became the executive director of the World Federation of Right to Die
Societies. He founded many organizations that promoted euthanasia and
educated people about something that much of the world considers taboo.
While working, he wrote and edited books, such as the Proceedings of
the First International Aeromedical Congress. Much of his writing revolved
around the work he was doing.
In his later years, he began focusing on his rejection of
Christianity. After exiling from Germany in 1995, he began entertaining more
personal goals. He has much more time to write now, unless he’s fulfilling
At 73, Hans lives in Los Gigantes, Tenerife Island, which is part of
the Canary Islands that belong to Spain. He has been married to Anita since
1978 and is a father and grandfather.
Now that Hans has books in circulation, he has discovered a newfound
fame. He can find himself on multiple websites, some of which consider him a
major contributor to the philosophy of human history. He deserves that
recognition, though, as he commits himself to advancing social and humane
progress of humankind.
Hans considers his first book, Jesus’ Bluff: The Universal Scandal
of the World, his most important work. In this controversial book, Jesus has
deceived the world, and Hans presents a time line of events that counter
everything we know about the birth of Christianity.
In Cross and Crime: “Jesus Came to Crucify the World” (The Gospel of
Philip), the speculation continues as Hans discusses Heaven and Hell and the
true meaning behind biblical text. Hans Atrott has plans to write an
autobiographical novel next, using himself as inspiration for the events. He
thinks that life writes the best novels and not fiction.
And Hans will forever be grateful for publishing companies like
America Star Books that are changing the publishing industry and going
against the grain, allowing him the freedom to publish such works.
