Dr. Eugene Heimler's "THE STORM" is a powerful drama in verse that reveals the secret of the survival of the Jewish people and how the Jews have been able to overcome history's never-ending challenges. The drama is rooted in the author's personal Nazi death-camp experiences and his ongoing meditation on the Jewish tragedy of Masada. Despite a history punctuated by atrocities, Heimler breathes hope into the future for Jews, by voicing God's affirmation of the eternity of their survival. The timeless message of Dr. Heimler's deeply moving drama is needed now more than ever before, to penetrate souls and educate minds. ----- Eugene Heimler is a Holocaust survivor, world-renowned pioneer of Human Social Functioning, mentor, educator, and bestselling author of Night of the Mist -"Best book ever written on the Holocaust" Dr. Sarah Fraiman-Morris, Professor of Holocaust Literature, Bar Ilan University. The Storm -"What began as a teenager's innocent, promising verse grew, through the nightmare of the Shoah, into a profound, mature human soul, plumbing the depths of history, philosophy and faith." Rabbi Dr. Andr Ungar. "Eugene Heimler is a true hero of the 20th century!" Ronald A. Lewis, M.Ed.

Author Biography

Eugene Heimler was born on 27 March 1922 in Szombathely, Hungary, the son of a lawyer and prominent member of the Social Democratic Party. He became a successful poet in Hungary, with two volumes of poetry published before he was twenty. At age twenty-two, he was deported to Auschwitz, Tr glitz, Berga-Elster and Buchenwald. His beloved mother had died after a long illness shortly before the start of World War II. His wife Eva, his father, sister and her young son were murdered in Auschwitz. In 1946 Heimler married his second cousin, Lily, and in 1947 they immigrated to England. Soon after Dr Heimler received his diploma as the first psychiatric social worker from Manchester University, he began to develop his own social-integrative method, which became well known in Europe, America, Canada, South Africa and Australia under the name of the Heimler Method of Social Functioning ( Starting in the 1970s, he regularly returned to Germany in order to teach young Germans his unique approach in which frustration and suffering are used as potential for satisfaction and creativity, and as the means to find purpose and meaning in life. He became a consultant to the Ministry of Social Security in England, the World Health Organization and the government of the United States of America. For twenty years he taught his subject at the University of London, England and his fame led to chairs at several universities in the USA and Canada. In 1984, his wife Lily died, leaving him two children. In 1985 Heimler received an honorary doctorate from the University of Calgary, Canada, where he had taught his subject for seventeen years. On the day marking the fortieth anniversary of the end of the war in Europe, he married Miriam Bracha, with whom he spent the last, very happy and fulfilled years of his life. Heimler died on 4 December 1990. Heimler's work is being continued by practitioners in the Heimler Method and researchers around the world. His book Night of the Mist is a recognized Holocaust classic. His subsequent books - among them Survival in Society, A Link in the Chain, The Healing Echo and Messages: A Survivor's Letter to a Young German - also became well known internationally.
