George G. Fishman

The author's father, Wilhelm Knoepfmacher, was at the Leopoldstadt gymnasium during Freud's last two years there. The author is thus uniquely able to draw his own sketch of Freud's eight years at the school as well as to make several corrections of the cumulative record. For instance, he informs us that Freud did not attend a Jewish primary school as Gicklhorn has asserted. Nor was it Victor Adler but rather Heinrich Braun who urged him to study law. We are also told that the teacher to whom Freud was closest was Samuel Hammerschlag. Anna Freud was named for this professor's daughter who is also probably identical with Irma of the famous injection dream. The many other biographical facts provided here should be of much interest to historians of psychoanalysis.
