A handsome gift edition of one of the seminal pieces of literature to emerge from World War 2: Viktor Frankl's moving account of his experiences in Auschwitz. With new introduction and appendices.
Viktor Frankl was born in Vienna in 1905 and was Professor of Neurology and Psychiatry at the University of Vienna Medical School. His wife, father, mother and brother all died in Nazi concentration camps; only he and his sister survived, but he never lost the qualities of compassion, loyalty, undaunted spirit and thirst for life (earning his pilot's licence aged 67). He died in Vienna in 1997. www.viktorfrankl.org
"An enduring work of survival literature" * New York Times * "If you read but one book this year, Dr Frankl's book should be that one." * Los Angeles Times * "His works are essential reading for those who seek to understand the human condition." * Chief Rabbi Dr Jonathan Sacks * "A poignant testimony...a hymn to the phoenix rising in each of us who choose life before flight." * Brian Keenan, author of An Evil Cradling * "One of the most remarkable books I have ever read. It changed my life" * Susan Jeffers, author of Feel the Fear And Do It Anyway and Embracing Uncertainty *
