9781597090117: Unfree Associations: A Psychoanalyst Recollects the Holocaust

In Unfree Associations, Gottfried Bloch, a psychoanalyst and Holocaust survivor, describes his experiences in Auschwitz through a lens at once clinical and personal. For Bloch, unfree associations are haunting and powerful memories that are always painfully on the margin of everyday life. Since the end of World War II, Bloch has been compiling and reliving his experiences, which he now revisits with a sense of clarity and objectivity. In Unfree Associations, Bloch does not seek to be praised for his survival, which he attributes to chance or luck. Instead, he seeks to be understood in human terms.

About the Author:

Dr. Gottfried R. Bloch was a psychoanalyst and Holocaust survivor. He was in October 1914 in what was then a part of Austria-Hungary. Bloch began to develop an interest in the human psyche at the age of fifteen when he came across the book Psychoanalyse und Individualpsychologie by the German psychiatrist Dr. Alfred Brauchle. He continued to read about medicine, biology, and psychology with aspirations of studying medicine at university. He studied at the medical school of Prague’s German University until the fall of 1938 when, as he was trying to enroll in his final semester, he was asked to sign a form declaring he was not Jewish. It wasn’t until 1947 that Bloch was able to finish his last semester of medical school at the Czech University. In 1955, Bloch’s application to emigrate to the U.S. was approved and a year later he arrived in Los Angeles with his family. In 1961 he was accepted into the L.A. Psychoanalytic Society and Institute and received his California Medical license. He died in 2008.

Review:

"A remarkably compelling account of one man's experience in the Auschwitz death camp...the point of view is unique...fascinating." -- Howard Zinn

"This account describes what happens to one person, but the concerns are transpersonal, humane." -- Sam Eisenstein

"[This] manuscript caught my attention to...where it was difficult to stop reading...His book is accurate and honest." -- Louis J. Micheels, M.D.
