Learn more about Viktor Frankl
In the last concentration camp, he comes down with typhoid fever. To avoid fatal collapse during the nights he keeps himself awake by reconstructing his book manuscript on slips of paper stolen from the camp office. On April 27 the camp is liberated by U.S. troops. In August Frankl returns to Vienna, where he learns, within a span of a few days, about the death of his wife, his mother and his brother who has been murdered in Auschwitz together with his wife. Frankl overcomes his despair; he becomes director of the Vienna Neurological Policlinic, a position he holds for 25 years. With his reconstructed book "ÄRZTLICHE SEELSORGE" he attains his "Habilitation", or teaching appointment, at the University of Vienna Medical School. He dictates, within 9 days, the book "EIN PSYCHOLOG ERLEBT DAS KONZENTRATIONSLAGER", which is later translated into English and published as "MAN'S SEARCH FOR MEANING". By 1997 more than 9 million copies of this book had been sold.
