Man´s Search For Meaning
Viktor E. Frankl
This book was planned to be published anonymously. Luckily Viktor E. Frankl decided otherwise. He reflects on his life. His story and his experiences. His observation of people surrounding him during the worst time of his life. An educated psychologist, a „doctor“ would have been well acclaimed in our times. Born 1905 and being a jew led to him being held in the most gruelsome places men ever produced. He was imprisoned in Auschwitz. And survived.
I truly admire the gratitude and greatnes of Viktor. After what has happened the author reflects on the people in the camps and their motivation. Their hopes and dreams in those desperate situations.
This book will change your life and it should. Motivation at its finest, thought through and discovered at the most gruelsome place for a human soul.
Favourite Part: Well…let´s not say the „favourite part“ – this sentence, right at the introduction sums up the book itself: „This tale is not concerned with the great horrors, which have already been described often enough (though less often believed), but with the multitude of small torments. In other words I will try to answer this question: how was everyday life in a concentration camp reflected in the mind of the average prisoner?“
