    Criticisms
    Although seen as a very influential figure and great psychologist, many academics have questioned and criticised the work of Victor Frankl. Not only his theorys have been called into question, but also the details of his self-reported experiences of the time he spent in concentration camps, published in his book "Man's search for meaning".
    Recent research has indicated that Frankl became a member of the Fatherland Front (the Austrian version of fascism) in 1934

    Spiritualism & Religion:
    In his book Man's search for Meaning, Frankl describes how spiritualism was a way to 'escape' the concentration camps. The spiritual mind , he found, was something the Nazi's were not able to access and was therefore a way to distance from what was happening around him. Frankl was brought up Jewish but did not practice this religion untill later in life, after the holocaust. It became an important part of his Logotherapy approach.
    Who/WhatWho & What did Viktor
    Theories of Personalities:
    One of the most important contributions to theory relating to the 'change of personalities' during the holocaust came from Viktor Frankl and Bruno Bettleheim. Frankl used his experiences in the Concentration Camps as a basis to support his Logotherapy (Adamczyk, 2005). Both men differ in their views of how prison life was experienced for the average prisoner, but both are equally capable of giving researchers an insight of how prison life can be perceived and to what extent personalities change and do not.

    Who/What Influenced Viktor Frankl?
    It goes without saying that when one has experienced and survived the horrors of the Concentration Camps during World War II, one cannot but help be influenced greatly by such a gasthly event. Frankl already had a great interest in the meaning of life and all the questions and answers that come with such reflections and by surviving the camps he was able to expand on his theory. In 1938 he published his first foundations of a 'new and original' approach to psychotherapy: Logotherapy/Existential Analysis (LTEA).
