When Hitler annexed Austria in 1938, Sigmund Freud, a non-observant Jew, was still working away in his study and home in Vienna. Freud was very ill and elderly at the time and he was a target of the Nazis. A crew of people had to band together to get Freud safely out of Austria and eventually settled in a new home in London, England. That story is told in a new book by tonight’s guest on Inquiry author ANDREW NAGORSKI. He has been Newsweek’s bureau chief in Hong Kong, Moscow, Rome, Berlin, Bonn, and Warsaw. His new book is SAVING FREUD: THE RESCUERS WHO BROUGHT HIM TO FREEDOM.
A dramatic true story about Sigmund Freud’s last-minute escape to London following the German annexation of Austria and the group of friends who made it possible.
