Digital Exhibition “Organized Escape – survival in exile. Viennese psychoanalysis 1938 and beyond.”

Article publié le 21 February 2022

Until 20 April 2022

Available online since last November, this online exhibition presents the attempts of psychoanalysts to escape following the Nazi invasion of 1938. Thanks to the help of colleagues around the world, many of them managed to find refuge elsewhere. At the head of this rescue operation was the English psychoanalyst Ernest Jones, who was in contact with Anna Freud. Sigmund Freud managed to reach London on 4 June 1938.

The exhibition shares with the visitors the often complicated administrative procedures and the imaginary routes, through documents, maps, letters and photos. But also audio and video recordings.
