Summary, etc.:
Part incisive new biography of Freud, part group biography of the extraordinary friends who saved his life, this riveting story shows how a group of those closest to Freud persuaded him to escape to London following the German annexation of Austria.
In March 1938 Hitler absorbed the country of Austria into the Third Reich. Many Jews had already fled, but Sigmund Freud-- eighty-one years old and ill with cancer-- was unconvinced that his life was in danger. Nagorski tells of how several prominent people coaxed Freud from his deep state of denial, and extricated him and his family to London. -- adapted from jacket
