Austrian physiologist Viktor Frankl

The photo above is shown along with an article about Viktor Frankl, which you can read in full here.

According to the news article, cited above, a new movie about Viktor Frankl is being planned.

The article starts off with this quote:

Man’s Search for Meaning, Viktor Frankl’s account of his attempts to rationalise the Holocaust, has been optioned for a film adaptation, according to Deadline.

Frankl, a contemporary of Freud, lost his whole family during the Nazi’s attempted extermination of the Jews. He developed his theory of “healing through meaning”, known as logotherapy, while a prisoner in the Auschwitz and Kaufering concentration camps. He counselled his fellow prisoners, many of whom were suicidal, with a philosophy that argued that striving for meaning, not pleasure nor power, is what keeps us alive.

End quote

Frankl was in one of the Kaufering sub-camps of Dachau.

Several years ago, I wrote about Viktor Frankl on this blog post:

Viktor Frankl is famous for making a mountain out of a mole hill. His life story promotes Holocaust denial. He was treated very well in the camps.

  1. One alternating story of the Holocaust is the ” everyone knew/ nobody knew ” story. Sometimes all the Germans are guilty and should be sent to prison NOW ! and at other times it was a closely guarded secret with only a few in on the murder plot ! One of the curiosities is the Poles seem to get a free pass ; we all know thousands of Polish civilians entered daily the Birkenau- Monowitz 500 acre industrial site yet none of them until May 1945 mentioned that mass murder was going on there. The Poles must have been the worst anti semites in history !
