Catalogue Note

A warm note from Freud to Max Eitingon, a friend and colleague

"I have just received 'Idee Fixe'," Freud writes. "Realised how little I have heard from you recently. Yours cordially, Freud". 

Max Eitingon was a renowned psychoanalyst in his own right, and was instrumental in establishing the institutional parameters of psychoanalytic education and training. He was also co-founder of the Berlin Psychoanalytic Polyclinic, and served as its president from 1920 to 1933. He was a member of Freud’s secret Psychoanalytic committee. After Hitler’s take over of power, Eitingon moved to Palestine where he continued his work in psychiatry. He was a controversial figure, whose connections with the Soviet Union lead some to consider that he might have been an agent for Moscow, conducting assassinations in Europe and in Mexico.
