Edith Eger

Born in Hungary, Edith Eger is one of the few Holocaust survivors old enough to remember life in the camps. Despite overwhelming odds, Edith survived the war and moved with her husband to the United States, where she raised a family and earned a Ph.D. in psychology. Dr. Eger maintains a busy clinical practice in La Jolla, California, and holds a faculty appointment at the University of California, San Diego. She also serves as a consultant for the U.S. Army and Navy in resiliency training and the treatment of PTSD. Eger is the author of “The Choice: Embrace the Possible.”
