Die meine Hand ergreifen - They Clasp My Hands - A Book Release Event with Elizabeth Frischauf

Friday, June 10, at 7:00 pm

 

Coming soon to Arts on the Lake

A new book of poems published by special publisher Theodore Kramer

AotL member, artist, accomplished psychiatrist, writer, and ceramist, Elizabeth Frischauf has released a book of her poetic writings that has been published by the distinguished Austrian book publisher, Theodor Kramer Gesellschaft. From their website we find this about her book.  She is currently in Austria on a book tour.

 

 

 

In artistically fragmented poetic speech, Elisabeth Frischauf's verses deal with the once widespread family, with the murder of the grandmothers that is still present, with the traumatization of the survivors. With her indignation and rebellion she lays claim to inexchangeable subjectivity. We hear a strong voice from New York.

As AotL's Executive Director, I am taking the liberty to say a few words about this work for I found the work to be quite moving. Elizabeth traces, through this poetry, remarkable family threads that, across generations, illuminate the good and evil in the world. It is not just the story of her family from World War I through the Holocaust and the birth of her first grandchild, but a deeply personal series of revelations. It exposes her journey of understanding of self through the trauma of those lost. We all learn how profound the moments that reach across time can be for anyone.  

 

Come hear her read at the book signing.

 

The publications of the Theodor Kramer Society enable the tangible reception of the culture and literature of exile through concrete people and their works. Every publication appearing through the efforts of the Theodor Kramer Society is another step in the fight against anti-Semitism, xenophobia, the denial of history and forgetting.

 

 

A Bit about Elizabeth:

 

She is an active member of the Lake Writers of AotL.

 

"I am a board certified psychiatrist in practice for over thirty years on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Working with individuals, couples and families, I deal with a broad range of issues such as life and career transitions, depression, strained relationships, trauma and anxiety, using both short and long-term psychotherapy.

 

An important part of my work is medical hypnosis, psychopharmacology, and the mentoring and supervision of psychiatrists and other professionals practicing psychotherapy. My approach to treatment is practical, intuitive and collaborative. It has been my experience over the years that it is in a warm and trusting therapeutic environment that patients can best make significant changes and reach their highest inner potential."
