Viktor Frankl & the Search for Meaning
Apr 14, 2017-- Few books of the last century have had a greater impact on our quest for meaning than Viktor Frankl's Man's Search for Meaning. This all-time bestseller was written by a Jewish man who had just lost everything in the Holocaust. When Frankl, emaciated from concentration camps, returned to his beloved Vienna, no one was there to meet him. His mother had been gassed at Auschwitz. His brother had been killed in another camp. His wife, Tilly, had starved to death in the women's camp at Bergen-Bergen. Now, he wondered, what was the point of his life? Frankl poured out Man's Search for Meaning in just nine days, weeping in an empty room with windows bombed out from the war. Seventy years later, the book remains a classic textbook for college students and a guidepost for people all faiths. Read on for an interview between professor Fran Grace and Frankl's grandson Alexander Vesely and Mary Cimiluca, Frankl family advisor, about their film Viktor & I. (53566 reads)
