Philosophy Book Discussion Group

The Philosophy Book Discussion Group will continue their discussion of The Choice: Embrace the Possible by Edith Eva Eger (Scribner, $27.00). The Choice is 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 took her Jewish family to an interment center and then to Auschwitz. Joseph Mengele chose to send her parents were sent to the gas chamber and to let Edie live. Edie managed to stay alive until the American troops liberated the camps in 1945 and found Edie in a pile of dying bodies. She chose to forgive her captors and find joy in her life every day. Today Edie is a renowned psychologist and speaker who specializes in treating patients with traumatic stress disorders.
