Holocaust Survivor Viktor Frankl was one of those people who do not allow their horrendous circumstances to defeat them.

Frankl was a psychotherapist in 1920s and ’30s Vienna. As a Jew, he was forced to give up his practice under the Nazis. He and his family were deported to Theresienstadt ghetto and, later, to Auschwitz. His wife was later transported to Bergen Belsen, where she died. The rest of his immediate family died in Auschwitz, apart from his sister, who had emigrated to Australia.

Having survived the camps, Frankl theorised that those who had a purpose in life had a better chance of survival than those who did not.
