Professor Frankl verbleef drie jaar in verschillende concentratiekampen, waar hij getuige was van het meest gruwelijke menselijke leed.
Dit is een kort, maar zeer boeiend verslag van zijn ervaringen. In zijn verhaal introduceert Viktor Frankl zijn filosofie – de logotherapie. Zijn denkbeelden vermengen zich echter zo geleidelijk en voorzichtig met het verhaal, dat dit niet Professor Frankl verbleef drie jaar in verschillende concentratiekampen, waar hij getuige was van het meest gruwelijke menselijke leed.
Zijn denkbeelden vermengen zich echter zo geleidelijk en voorzichtig met het verhaal, dat dit niet zomaar een boek over de verschrikkingen van het concentratie kamp is, maar een zeer diepgaande verhandeling.
Voor iemand die jarenlang niet anders dan lijden en de macht van het kwaad om zich heen heeft gezien, heeft hij een verrassend optimistische opinie omtrent het vermogen van de mens zich boven zijn lijden te verheffen en een toepasselijke gerichte waarheid te vinden.
Frankl was hoogleraar in de neurologie en de psychiatrie aan de Universiteit van Wenen, hij is auteur van zo’n boeken die in vijftien talen vertaald werden. Van dit boek werden er bijvoorbeeld in de Verenigde Staten ver over de twee miljoen exemplaren verkocht.

Find meaning in what you do and always have something left to accomplish are just two of the ideas that speak across the years. I’m 77 and every time I re-read the book, I find new relevant meaning. Does reading this book make life easier and prepare oneself for suffering?
I hope this is not a depressing book. Katrina Shawver The book is a fast read, and it’s hard to argue with a book that has more than 12 million copies in print worldwide.

I read a news article on Viktor Frankl – very interesting.
Before the war he established suicide prevention centers in Vienna for teenagers, and tried to help them find their unique meaning in life. It’s based on his time in Auschwitz – not a happy place, but wise observations. I wouldn’t call it depressing; I would call it observant of people in difficult circumstances and why some give up, and some keep hope alive. It’s thought provoking in a positive way.

The original part one was the strongest I think because the rest started to go into the typical psychobabble inherent to books trying to contribute to the academic side of psychology or psychiatry but the first part really grounded the idea of giving meaning to one existence into personal experience and I found it very poignant about the mental state of people in very stressful and hopeless situations.

It’s a very empowering and important idea that no matter the situation a person can control their behavior and influence their own feelings of the situation.
This idea of a person having so much control over their own selves and survival is one I whole heartedly agree with. Anyone having trouble figuring out life or what the point is could benefit from reading this I think. View all 6 comments.

In what must have feankl hopeless circumstances, is there any point in searching for meaning for one’s life? Frankl does not dwell on the atrocities, but he does detail the mindset of his fellow prisoners facing what most of them knew was their death as well as the death of their loved ones. Using In Man’s Search for Meaning, Victor Frankl begins his description of life in Nazi concentration camps including Auschwitz with the premise that life in the camps represents a provisional existence.
Using his experiences as a guide, he outlines his ideas about logotherapy while finding reason to hold to a ‘tragic optimism. Reading about the holocaust awakens me to the varying sides and degrees frnkl human nature. Is it surprising that in those depths we again found only human qualities which in there very nature were a mixture of good and evil? The rift dividing good from evil, which goes through all human beings, reaches into the lowest depths and becomes apparent even on the bottom of the abyss which is laid open by the concentration camp Reading about the holocaust awakens me to the varying sides and degrees of human nature.
The rift dividing good from evil, which goes through all human beings, reaches into the lowest depths and becomes apparent even on the bottom of the abyss which is laid open by the concentration camp.
dr Reading about the holocaust reminds me that we vikttor simple and easily manipulated; that we can easily shut off our conscience and our ability to empathize, and do unimaginably horrible things to fellow, innocent, human beings.
This is not a positive testament to human nature. Both are found everywhere; they penetrate into all groups of society. No group consists entirely of decent or indecent people. In this sense, no group is of “pure race” – therefore one occasionally found a decent fellow among the camp guards.
But then I see that goodness can still exist, even when one has every reason not to act on empathy; even when a simple, helpful act for another can threaten one’s own life.
Nazi’s that showed compassion for prisoners zih often killed, yet some men were brave and caring enough to help his fellow man.
This gives me hope.

Here’s a specific story from the book that highlights this: It was far more than the small piece of bread which moved me to tears at that time. It was the human “something” which this man also gave to me – the word and look which accompanied the gift. In fact, the kindness was returned: The 3 men would only give up the SS commander under the condition that no harm come to him.
And, not only was he taken in unharmed, but he was later given the role of supervising the collection and distribution of clothing among the villages. Had this man not acted on compassion, he would have been caught and suffered a difficult fate.
But sometimes — no, not enough — but sometimes, the good do win out. This is a positive testament to human nature. Frankl gives an honest, modest account of his holocaust experience. But he helped a lot of people make it through — he gave people hope through his psychiatric knowledge, insights, and wisdom. Through the process he became a firm believer in logotherapy, which he explains in detail in the second half of the book. According to logotherapy, one must find meaning in life, and if one finds meaning, he or she can make it through anything.
Or, as the Nietzsche quote which Frankl was fond ofsays, “He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how.

That is why man is even ready to suffer, on the condition, to be sure, that his suffering has a meaning. Frankl was reminded of this at the start of every New Year, when the deaths in the camp drastically increased. According to Frankl, there was one main variable involved with this: A number of prisoners kept themselves going by imagining themselves out of the camp in time for the holidays, which they hoped to spend with their loved ones.
They pictured it in their minds and it kept them going through many grueling days. When the holidays came and went, they no longer had that image to strive for and were crushed.
They gave up hope. They gave up meaning. They gave up life. Reading this book helped give me perspective into my own life, and insight into the power that exists within us all.
While reading, I tried my best to fathom the great pain and suffering that those in camps went through, and I tried to understand how they endured it. Starvation, unrelenting work, freezing conditions in the winter, dehydration in the summer; and not just physical pain, but imagine watching neighbors, friends, and family members die.
