“When we are no longer able to change a situation we are challenged to change ourselves.” ~ Viktor E. Frankl (March 26, 1905 to September 2, 1997)
Viktor E. Frankl was an Austrian psychiatrist, educator, author, and a Holocaust survivor. Frankl survived three Nazi death camps including Auschwitz; all but one of his immediate family members were murdered in the death camps. He became famous for his book Man’s Search for Meaning: An Introduction to Logotherapy (1959; published in Austria in 1946).
