By Eger, Edith
Edith Eger was a gymnast and ballerina when she was sent to Auschwitz at the age of sixteen. There, she was made to dance for the infamous Josef Mengele. Her heroic actions helped her sister to survive, and her bunkmates to save her life during a death march, after which she was ...found in a pile of bodies, barely alive. She recovered and moved to America, going on to become an internationally acclaimed psychologist, and giving the key note address at Viktor Frankl's 90th birthday party. Like Frankl's Man's Search for Meaning, Dr Edith Eger's important book could change your life. Eger shares stories of the Holocaust and the experiences of her clients, who range from survivors of abuse to soldiers suffering from PTSD. She explains how many of us live within a mind that has become a prison and shows how freedom becomes possible once we confront our suffering. Warm, wise and compassionate, The Choice by Edith Eger offers profound insights into the nature of human suffering, and our capacity to heal.Read more
