Cardinal Maradiaga presents books on Auschwitz survivor Viktor Frankl

The title “The Door of Happiness” refers to an observation made by the Danish philosopher Kierkegaard, who said that opening the door of happiness for others, is the key to finding it yourself. ;

“This sentence shares one of the fundamental concepts of the theory of Frankl, that being human means being open to reality, especially interpersonal reality, paying attention to the questions, emergencies, any type of problem, not just economic, but also in the family, culture and education.”

After surviving four Nazi concentration camps over the span of three years, Viktor Frankl founded the Logotherapy School in Vienna. According to the school, to find happiness, man must find self-transcendence, which is to set goals outside oneself.

Among his many fans is Cardinal Oscar Andres Rodriguez Maradiaga, who considers Frankl as a model for all people.

“Above all he was a man who lived the experience of pain and suffering and carried on without resentment, and therefore has sent a message of peace that is still relevant today.”

Viktor Frankl died in 1997 of a heart attack. He published over 30 books among which was “Man?s Search for Meaning,” in which he recounts his experience in the Auschwitz Concentration Camp.
