The Soul of a Man Who
In his wisdom, my father, a Holocaust survivor whose camp experiences included torture, knew that everyone has the capacity deep down to be a Nazi. He didn’t “take in” his trauma as a personal attack, as so many survivors did. Yet, naturally, he struggled with this eruption of evil and its devastating effects on his life. This talk is about his story—a story of the nobility of the human soul in the face of profound depravity and evil. Our aim will be to gain an appreciation of the attitude the ego must take in its confrontation with archetypal evil.
