"We who lived in the concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms--to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way."
I enjoyed this book for its explorations and honesty in relating the author’s concentration camp experiences. It was a visceral and tactical account that was new to me. Also, to see what the Frankl was able to build from this horror drove home his message. Reading this book made me realize again how much my own outlook has to do with how I interpret the events of my life.
