Future Psychoanalysts and Memories of the Second World War

M. Donald Coleman, M.D., Eugene H. Kaplan, M.D., Maurice S. Nadelman, M.D. and Howard H. Schlossman, M.D.

On Veterans Day, November 11, 1995, the year marking the fiftieth anniversary of the end of the Second World War, the New York Psychoanalytic Society and Institute organized a presentation of soldiers' experiences from that war. The following is a transcription—formatted for the journal—of the memoirs that the analysts delivered on that occasion. The presenters were NYPSI members M. Donald Coleman, Eugene H. Kaplan, Maurice S. Nadelman, and Howard H. Schlossman. During the war, Dr. Coleman was stationed with the 62nd Army Field Hospital. Drs. Kaplan and Nadelman served in combat with the 87th Infantry Division, only learning that they served together in the same division during their participation in the NYPSI discussion group. Dr. Schlossman was a Battalion surgeon in the 6th Armored Division; like Drs. Kaplan and Nadelman, he served in General George S. Patton's Third Army. All four presenters trained in psychoanalysis at NYPSI after the war. The transcript of the full discussion that accompanied these presentations is deposited at the Archives of the A.A. Brill Library of NYPSI.
