After completing his medical residency and liver disease fellowship, Dr. Malnak practiced as a board-certified internist. He served as Chief of Internal Medicine at the US Army Hospital, Fort Sill, OK., and was medical director of several organizations. Dr. Malnak was also a Clinical Assistant Professor at the Stritch School of Medicine of Loyola University. His interest in the Holocaust was sparked by all the men, women and children of his father’s Lithuanian family having been sent to a death camp by the Nazis and exterminated. He and his wife Patricia live in Florida with their Whippet—Paige and Parakeet—Kiwi.
