For the first time ever, I was invited to be a guest blogger. It was on Edie Jarolim's fascinating exploration of her Viennese forebears' genealogy, a blog entitled Freud's Butcher. One of her relatives may well have been a butcher for Sigmund Freud. She discovered that another of her family members attended the same high school as Viktor Frankl, the subject of my YA biography, Viktor Frankl: A Life Worth Living. Edie asked me to write a little about known and possible connections at Sperlgymnasium, the high school attended by her Viktor, Viktor Frankl and Sigmund Freud (Freud at a much earlier date, of course).
