A Link in the Chain
- A Journey from Auschwitz to Resurrection -
(also under the title "My Life After Auschwitz")
In this second powerfully written volume of Eugene Heimler’s incredible life’s journey from persecuted Jewish child in a small town in Hungary to world-renowned writer, therapist and teacher, Heimler is on his way home to Hungary from the concentration camps of Germany, where he had lost all his family. On this journey he experiences many life-threatening moments: being on a train with a former German SS man; witnessing the brutal rape of his traveling companion by Russian thugs; attempts on his life and being arrested and charged with treason in Hungary.
Eventually he reaches England and remarries, but his trials are manifold. After hearing that the Secret Police are torturing his friends in Budapest, he realizes he can never return to Hungary and has a breakdown. When a psycho-analysis helps him come back to life and regain his hope for the future, he is ready to act on an early ambition to become a writer and psychologist. He starts to write NIGHT OF THE MIST, which has become a world classic, and becomes a Psychiatric Social Worker. These challenges have their obstacles as well, and Heimler vividly describes his work as a Psychiatric Social Worker, including his refusal to give up on others—and himself. His experiences eventually lead to the development of a new method of therapy, which is today known as the Heimler Method of Social Functioning.
