Carol Seigel on Sigmund Freud - Psychoanalyst
Sigmund Freud - b. 1856 MoraviaClick here for tickets - £40, 11th June 2015

Sigmund Freud, the founding father of psychoanalysis, spent most of his life in Vienna. In 1938, already in his eighties, he and his family were forced by the Nazi occupation to flee Austria, and settled in London. Freud died a year later, shortly after the outbreak of the Second World War. This talk tells the dramatic story of Freud’s eventful last year in London, of exile, dislocation, family, work, and new found celebrity, peopled by visits from those as varied as Salvador Dali, Virginia Woolf and HG Wells. This was not the Anglophile Freud’s first visit to London, and his earlier trip will be included in describing his time in “lovely, free, magnanimous England”.

Carol Seigel is Director of the Freud Museum London, Sigmund Freud’s last home. Carol is a historian by training and has worked in different museums in London for over twenty years, including the Jewish Museum, the Museum of London, and Hampstead Museum. She has been at the Freud Museum since 2009.
