In honor of Anton O. Kris
We cordially invite you to the second discussion of the roundtable series Refugees and Immigrants: Their Experience and Contribution to Psychoanalysis in North America by the Sigmund Freud Museum and the Erikson Institute for Education, Research and Advocacy of the Austen Riggs Center.
This roundtable #2 Refugee Psychoanalysts 1920–1955: Enriching Psychoanalysis in the Americas will discuss the history of forced migration of psychoanalysts from Europe and their impact on psychoanalysis in America. Beginning in the 1920s and again between 1938 and 1940, the rise of fascism and its attendant antisemitism led most Central European psychoanalysts to emigrate to other countries. Their contributions fundamentally reshaped the field of psychoanalysis in the United States and England. In this roundtable, scholars will discuss the historical experience of analysts who were forced to leave Europe, and the integration of those individuals and their psychoanalytic theories into American psychoanalytic institutes.

Refugees and Immigrants: Their Experience and Contribution to Psychoanalysis in North America
This series of round tables, hosted by Tom Kohut, President of Freud Foundation US and Sue and Edgar Wachenheim III, Professor of History at Williams College, will examine topics related to the influence of refugee psychoanalysts on the training and practice of psychoanalysis in the USA, genocide and the impact of loss and destruction on psychoanalysis, and the and the experience of contemporary immigrant analysts. The events will be set up and broadcast via Zoom, featuring different experts from Europe and the USA. Both institutions will make the recordings available on their online media sites.
The roundtable series is part of the project From Despair to Hope: The Holocaust, Immigration, and Psychoanalysis in North America
The cooperation serves to honor Anton O. Kris' legacy, as the Executive Director of the Freud Archives, and for his work building relationships across the ocean and across generations of psychoanalysis. These events will pave the way for a planned exhibition project at the Austen Riggs Center in Stockbridge, MA (June–October 2023), based on the exhibition Organized Escape – Survival in Exile. Viennese Psychoanalysis 1938 and Beyond by the Sigmund Freud Museum in Vienna.
