Viktor Frankl was an Austrian neurologist and psychiatrist imprisoned in a number of Nazi concentration camps during the Second World War.

In 1995, just two years before his death, Viktor was interviewed by First Things, an interreligious, nonpartisan research and educational organisation based in New York.

During the exchange, Viktor said: “I am absolutely convinced that the chambers of Auschwitz, Treblinka, and Maidanek were ultimately prepared not in some ministry or other in Berlin, but rather at the desks and in the lecture halls of nihilistic scientists and philosophers.”

Nazi Germany, along with various Communist regimes, have all vividly demonstrated, not only what happens when people adopt bad ideas but the devastating results of having the power to enforce their logical end.
