Summary
  • Viktor E. Frankl's Man's Search for Meaning is a classic work of Holocaust literature. Like Anne Frank's Diary of a Young Girl and Elie Wiesel's Night, Frankl's masterpiece is an examination of life in the Nazi death camps. At the same time, Frankl's universal lessons for coping with suffering and finding one's purpose in life offer an unforgettable message for readers seeking solace and guidance. This young adult edition features the entirety of Frankl's Holocaust memoir and an abridged version of his writing on psychology, supplemented with photographs, a map of the concentration camps, a glossary of terms, a selection of Frankl's letters and speeches, and a timeline of his life and of important events in the Holocaust. These supplementary materials bring Frankl's story to life, serving as valuable teaching and learning tools
  • A timeless examination of life in the Nazi death camps, adapted for young adult readers. Frankl's Holocaust memoir provides universal lessons for coping with suffering and finding one's purpose in life offer an unforgettable message for readers seeking solace and guidance
