Giving Life an Answer

An autobiography

“It is we who have to answer the questions that life has for us. And we can only answer these questions of life by answering the question of our own existence.” Viktor E. Frankl

A new edition of the classic "Recollections: An Autobiography". Frankl’s account of his time at Auschwitz," Man’s Search for Meaning", has moved millions of readers – but what about his life before and afterwards? In his autobiography, the world-renowned psychologist recounts the key experiences that shaped the internal attitude that made him a pioneer of resilience and a founder of meaning-oriented psychotherapy – his Jewish family home, his early contacts with Sigmund Freud and Alfred Adler, the beginnings of logotherapy, his persecution and deportation, and his subsequent return to Vienna, where he spent almost his entire life. Numerous photographs from the family archive complement Frankl’s autobiography – which, despite his suffering and loss, is shaped by brightness, optimism, and a love for humanity.
