Episode Info: I am proud and also honoured to share with you today’s interview with Dr Edith Eve Eger. She is a Concentration Camp and Holocaust surviver who overcame all the obstacles and  became a world renowned clinical psychologist and lecturer, helping individuals overcome their limitations, discover their powers, and achieve results they previously considered unattainable. She brings a  message of healing and personal growth. A message of freedom from self imposed limitations. A message of CHOICE to move from recovery to discovery and beyond. Edith was born in Hungary in 1927. When the war began she was preparing to participate in Olympics as she was one of the best in gymnastics in her country. But due to her Jewish origin she was first expelled from the team and then at the age of 16, she, her elder sister Magda and parents were sent to Auschwitz on a cattle train.Upon arrival to the concentration camp her parents were immediately sent to gas chambers and she would never see them again. Edith and Magda miraculously survived all the deadly trial’s of the Nazi’s. And after all  on the day when Allied troops have finally entered the concentration camp she was found in the pile of dead bodies barely alive, but still breathing. After war she got married, but as her husband was persecuted by Communists, they left everything and migrated to USA, where they had to begin everything from scratch once again. In 1969 she got her degree in Psychology and is still an active Therapist and Speaker. She wrote her first book at the age of 90. She has appeared on numerous television programs including CNN and the Oprah Winfrey Show.Just after my interview with her at the age of 92, she had a patient waiting for her. She is an incredible example of the Choice we all make every day:  “our painful experiences are not a liability. They are a gift.”Learn more about Dr. Eger's work: US ON INSTAGRAM: US ON YOUTUBE: TO OUR PODCAST! And listen to more episodes:—Spotify:—Apple Podcasts:—Google Podcasts:—iHeart Radio:—Stitcher:
