We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing the last of human freedoms - to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances - to choose one's own way.


Victor Frankl

Viktor Emil Frankl M.D., Ph.D. (March 26, 1905 - September 2, 1997) was an Austrian neurologist and psychiatrist as well as a Holocaust survivor. Frankl was the founder of logotherapy, which is a form of Existential Analysis, the "Third Viennese School" of psychotherapy. His book Man's Search for Meaning (first published under a different title in 1959: From Death-Camp to Existentialism. Originally published in 1946 as Ein Psycholog erlebt das Konzentrationslager) chronicles his experiences as a concentration camp inmate and describes his psychotherapeutic method of finding meaning in all forms of existence, even the most sordid ones, and thus a reason to continue living. He was one of the key figures in existential therapy

    εμείς που κατοικούσαμε σε στρατόπεδα συγκέντρωσης μπορούμε να θυμηθούμε τους άνδρες που περπατούσαν από τις καλύβες παρηγορώντας τους άλλους, δίνοντας το τελευταίο κομμάτι ψωμί τους. μπορεί να είναι λίγοι, αλλά προσφέρουν επαρκή απόδειξη ότι τα πάντα μπορούν να ληφθούν από έναν άνθρωπο, αλλά το τελευταίο των ανθρώπινων ελευθεριών - να επιλέξουν τη στάση κάποιου δεδομένου συνόλου περιστάσεων - να επιλέξουν το δικό τους τρόπο.

    chúng tôi sống trong các trại tập trung có thể nhớ những người đàn ông đi qua các túp lều an ủi người khác, cho đi miếng bánh mì cuối cùng của họ. họ có thể ít về số lượng, nhưng họ đưa ra bằng chứng đầy đủ rằng mọi thứ có thể được lấy từ một người đàn ông, nhưng một điều cuối cùng là quyền tự do của con người - chọn thái độ của một người trong bất kỳ hoàn cảnh nào - chọn cách riêng của họ.
