Imagine reading a page in a book that moved you to write a poem to tell the story you heard. This is what happened for Sara Robinson. She was reading Viktor Frankl's classic book, Man's Search for Meaning.
Viktor Frankl, famed psychiatrist and holocaust survivor told a story of inner greatness about a young woman, soon to die, but cheerful inspite of this knowledge. After reading the story, Sara sat down and wrote a poem. She stepped into the experience to bring it to life with her artistry as she imagined it might be. The poem is entitled Dr. Frankl's Poem.
We invite you to listen to Sara Robinson tell the story in her own words. Let her read Dr. Frankl's Poem as you go through our self-learning exhibit at the Women's Gallery at the Global Dialogue Center. See links under the exhibit above.
