Embrace the Possible
Edith Eva Eger: The Choice Edith Eva Eger: The Choice

A ​powerful, moving memoir—and a practical guide to healing—written by Dr. Edith Eva Eger, an eminent psychologist whose own experiences as a Holocaust survivor help her treat patients and allow them to escape the prisons of their own minds.
Edith Eger was sixteen years old when the Nazis came to her hometown in Hungary and took her Jewish family to an interment center and then to Auschwitz. Her parents were sent to the gas chamber by Joseph Mengele soon after they arrived at the camp. Hours later Mengele demanded that Edie dance a waltz to “The Blue Danube” and rewarded her with a loaf of bread that she shared with her fellow prisoners. These women later helped save Edie’s life. Edie and her sister survived Auschwitz, were transferred to the Mauthausen and Gunskirchen camps in Austria, and managed to live until the American troops liberated the camps in 1945 and found Edie in a pile of dying bodies.
One of the few living Holocaust survivors to remember the horrors of… (tovább)

Edith Eva Eger: The Choice Embrace the Possible

Komolyan, csak azt tudom mondani, hogy ez a könyv minden elemében csodálatos. Értékelésben alig lehet szavakba önteni, miért is lett kedvenc. Pont egy nehéz időszakban talált meg ez a gyönyörűség. Edith Eva Eger szavai megnyugtattak, története elborzasztott, inspirált, elképesztett. Terápiás tapasztalatai leírása alapján csak egy dolgot sajnáltam, hogy én nem járhatok ehhez a csodás pszichológushoz. Nem beszél magas lóról, nem tudja a biztos megváltást. Egyszerűen, bölcsen átadja a tapasztalatait a poszttraumával. Többször olvasós, értékes könyv. Csak hálás tudok lenni az élményért, amit kaptam tőle.

Maybe to heal isn't to erase the scar, or even to make the scar. To heal is to cherish the wound.

When you can’t go in through a door, go in through a window, our mother used to say. There is no door for survival. Or recovery either. It’s all windows.

Our painful experiences aren’t a liability – they’re a gift. They give us perspective and meaning, an opportunity to find our unique purpose and our strength. There is no one-size-fits-all template for healing, but there are steps that can be learned and practiced, steps that each individual can weave together in his or her own way, steps in the dance of freedom.

I leave Auschwitz. I skip out! I pass under the words ARBEIT MACHT FREI. How cruel and mocking those words were when we realized that nothing we could do would set us free. But as I leave the barracks and the ruined crematories and the watch houses and the visitors and the museum guard behind me, as I skip under the dark iron letters toward my husband, I see the words spark with truth. Work has set me free. I survived so that I could do my work. Not the work the Nazis meant—the hard labor of sacrifice and hunger, of exhaustion and enslavement. It was the inner work. Of learning to survive and thrive, of learning to forgive myself, of helping others to do the same. And when I do this work, then I am no longer the hostage or the prisoner of anything. I am free.

I think of my family’s apartment caked in manure, our piano sitting in the coffeehouse down the road, the way the big political moments—power changing hands, borders rewritten—are always personal too. Košice becomes Kassa and then Košice again.

To heal, we embrace the dark. We walk through the shadow of the valley on our way to the light.

Only after many years did I come to understand that running away doesn’t heal pain. It makes the pain worse. In America I was farther geographically than I had ever been from my former prison. But here I became more psychologically imprisoned than I was before.

Our ballet master reminded us that strength and flexibility are inseparable – for one muscle to flex, another must open; to achieve length and limberness, we have to hold our cores strong.
