Best Books: Marc

Marc, LFHS class of 2018, has a best book titled Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor E. Frankl. He says, “It provides an amazing perspective on the sociology and psychology of prisoners in the concentration and death camps of the Holocaust. While following the story of Mr. Frankl and his survival of these horrific events you learn many enlightening concepts that I still ponder on long after reading the book.”

From Goodreads:

Psychiatrist Viktor Frankl’s memoir has riveted generations of readers with its descriptions of life in Nazi death camps and its lessons for spiritual survival. Between 1942 and 1945 Frankl labored in four different camps, including Auschwitz, while his parents, brother, and pregnant wife perished. Based on his own experience and the experiences of others he treated later in his practice, Frankl argues that we cannot avoid suffering but we can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose.
