The Struggle against Mourning. By Ilany Kogan. Lanham, MD: Jason Aronson, 2007, 263 pp., $39.95.

Review by:
Brenda Clorfene Solomon

In opening a collection that often reads like a good novel, Ilany Kogan writes that “this book has grown out of my own struggle against mourning, on the professional as well as on the personal level. It illustrates the pathway from absence of mourning to an emotional awareness of pain and loss, including the therapeutic dilemmas involved in such a journey” (p. vii). Kogan is a training analyst with the Israel Psychoanalytic Society and chief supervisor of the Psychotherapy Center of the Treatment of the Child and Adolescent in Bucharest. She is a member of the scientific advisory board of the Fritz Bauer Institute for Holocaust Studies in Frankfurt.

Her analytic interests are shaped by the fact that she shares a common traumatic historical experience with many of her analysands. She belongs to that large group of adults whose parents were affected, directly or indirectly, by the Holocaust. In her published personal history (Kogan 2003) she recalls her father, who on completing his studies in pediatric medicine in Vienna returned to Romania, where he married Kogan's mother.
