The ACF Washington is honored to welcome back Gregorij H. von Leitis and Michael Lahr from the NY based non-profit organization Elysium — Between Two Continents, presenting the program „Nevertheless Say ‘Yes’ to Life“, a literary collage from the groundbreaking works of Viktor Frankl.

Concept & Introduction: Michael Lahr
Recitation: Gregorij H. von Leitis

In the 1920s, Viktor Frankl (1905–1997) founded the «Third Viennese School of Psychotherapy», the so-called logotherapy or existential analysis. In his approach to therapy he focused on meaning and value. Having survived the Holocaust as the only one of his immediate family, Frankl reflected upon his experiences in the concentration camps in his famous book «Man's search for Meaning» which has become one of the ten most influential books in the US. Lesser known is his play «Synchronization in Birkenwald: A Metaphysical Conference », which he wrote in 1946. Soon after the Holocaust, Frankl advocated for reconciliation as the only way out of the destructive catastrophe of war: those aspects of Frankl's work are more important than ever in today's broken world.

*Parking on International Court is available after 6:30 pm (for the duration of the event) or on 36th Street; access to the Embassy through the park behind the building.
