Sigmund Freud

Austrian neurologist and the founder of psychoanalysis, 1856-1939

Sigmund Freud is known as the father of psychoanalysis. In creating psychoanalysis, a clinical method for treating psychopathology through dialogue between a patient and a psychoanalyst, Freud developed therapeutic techniques such as the use of free association and discovered transference, establishing its central role in the analytic process. His work has suffused contemporary Western thought and popular culture. In January 1933, the Nazis took control of Germany, and Freud's books were prominent among those they burned and destroyed. He died in his London exile on 23 September 1939.

Zeugnis: „Herr Dr. ERNST PAUL HOFFMANN geb. am 23. Jänner 1891 in Radautz in der Bukowina, provoviert zum med. univ. Doctor an der Universität in Wien im Jahre 1914, hat sich, bald nach der Beendigung seines militärärztlichen Dienstes während der Kriegsjahr dem Studium der Psychoanalyse zugewndet und machte die von unserer Vereinigung vorgeschriebene Ausbildung in Kursen, Seminaren, Lehranalyse und praktischer Arbeit am Ambulatorium der Vereinigung mit. Er beendete den Unterrichtsgang im Jahre 1927.

Seit dem Jahre 1926 ist er Mitglied unserer Verinigung. Herr Dr. Hoffmann war von März 1933 bis Februar 1937 Assistent am Psychoanalytischen Ambulatorium in Wien. […]“ Hoffmann begann 1922 seine Lehranalyse bei Paul Federn und bei Eduard Hitschmann und arbeitete 1924 bis 1937 als Sekundararzt und Assistent am Psychoanalytischen Ambulatorium der Wiener Psychoanalytischen Vereinigung, in die er 1926 als außerordentliches und 1931 als Vollmitglied aufgenommen wurde. 1936 hielt er die Vorlesung Einführung in die Psychoanalyse am Wiener Psychoanalytischen Lehrinstitut.Ab 1927 betrieb er eine private psychoanalytische Praxis im 6. Bezirk in Wien. Nach dem Anschluss Österreichs 1938 emigrierte er mit seiner Familie nach Belgien. Dort war er Lehranalytiker der späteren Gründer der Association des Psychanalystes de Belgique (APB). Das Affidavit der American Psychological Association für die USA erhielt er erst, als die Deutschen 1940 Belgien überfielen. Diese inhaftierten ihn für mehrere Monate im Lager in Saint-Cyprien in Südfrankreich. Von dort wurde er in das Camp de Gurs überstellt. Eine Möglichkeit nach Kuba auszureisen, schlug er aus, da seine Familie noch in Belgien festhalten wurde. 1941 wurde er in das Lager Les Milles verlegt, aus dem er 1942 zu Freunden nach Marseille fliehen konnte. Diese brachten ihn über die Schweizer Grenze, wo er in einem Flüchtlingslager bei Lausanne untergebracht wurde. Hoffmann hatte sich in der Gefangenschaft ein Magenleiden zugezogen und verstarb im Dezember 1944 bei einer Operation..

Eigenh. Notiz mit U.
Autograph ist nicht mehr verfügbar

On a four-page letter, addressed to Freud by "Alexander Stiglitz, Rožnava [Rosenau], Slovensko. C. S. R" (Eastern Slovakia) and dated November 20, 1933. Stiglitz describes some cases of stammering that occurred in his family and asks whether and under which circumstances a treatment of his brother might be possible: "I note that my father also began to stammer when he was 11, after falling on his head from a height of about eight feet; the impediment now concerns almost exclusively the sound K. His bother would stammer for some time, apparently without reason, but this ceased at age 19. In the case of my brother, the impediment worsened, especially in the last two years. At the moment, the spasmodically gaping mouth is highly characteristic. He stammers at every sound, most strongly probably at the labials M, P, F (but also A), somewhat less so at the gutturals. It distresses him; he becomes nervous, irritable, perspires. (Body weight 53 kgs, height 168 cm.) He works at my father's inn (with the elder brother) [...]". - Under Stiglitz's letter, Freud noted "Zur gefälligen Beantwort[un]g | 10/XII | Ihr Freud", leaving the reply to Paul Federn.

To an „estimated friend“, his Vienna colleague, the British-Austrian historian and university professor Alfred Francis Pribram (1859-1942) about a protegé and the prospect of his own research institute: „Provided that it is your decision, I was asked to warmly recommend the young man whose plea you’re thus receiving. I’m doing so without objection as the attempt of a ‚protection‘ seems justified if it’s to his advantage. I know the family […] very well […] The city of Vienna will gift us with a construction site for a PSA [i. e. psychoanalysis] institute. However, we don’t have any money to build it. The Americans have money for all kinds of foolishness, but it would be illogical to expect them to care about analysis […]“. - Pribram emigrated to England in 1939, having been active there for some time. He was a close friend to Sigmund Freud, Josef Redlich and Ludo Moritz Hartmann. Among his students were A. J. P. Taylor, the best-known British historian of the 20th century.

To Gilbert Perleberg from the Federation of the German Yorek Movement in New York. Freud states his great interest for the explanations of Hans Moser in the "Rundbrief" (circular), and is pleased to see that psychoanalysis arouses interest in this certain circle. Nevertheless Freud means to have found some mistakes in the essay, as he does not believe the problem of conscience holds a central position in his works. - On stationery with printed letterhead.
