Meaning and Memory

Due to the Corona pandemic, we had to postpone the event. The new date: 11. - 12.10.2021. Please understand the change.

The program for the Viktor Frankl Symposium 2021 will stay the same. We intend to approach the broad topics of meaning and memory from multiple perspectives. Again, we are honoured to host many renowned lecturers and workshop leaders.
Margit Fischer, winner of the City of Vienna Viktor Frankl Prize 2018 and wife of the former President of Austria, will present the opening lecture entitled What we pass on. Further lectures will be given by educator, communication expert and trainer Pamela Emmerling, professor of education Peter Gstettner and phsychiatric doctor, psychoanalyst, and Holocaust survivor Eva Umlauf. Workshops will be conducted by Pamela Emmerling, Peter Gstettner, Eva Umlauf, Otto Teischel, Harald Mori, Andrea Lauritsch, Alma Brkic-Elezovic, Nadja Danglmaier and Lydia Burchhardt.
