THE NINETEENTH INTERNATIONAL PSYCHOANALYTIC CONGRESS will take place in Geneva, Switzerland, from July 24th through July 28th, 1955. The Program Committee, under the chairmanship of Dr. Phyllis Greenacre (211 Central Park West, New York 24, N. Y.) and Dr. Ernst Kris (135 Central Park West, New York 23, N. Y.), requests that all papers to be submitted be received not later than February 20th, 1955.


On the anniversary of the birth of Sigmund Freud, May 6th, 1954, in the presence of about two hundred guests, who included the two Deputy Mayors of the city of Vienna, the Rector of the University, and the Dean of the Faculty of Medicine, a memorial plaque was unveiled on the outer wall of 19 Berggasse, Vienna.

During the Sixth Annual Meeting of the WORLD FEDERATION FOR MENTAL HEALTH in Vienna in August 1953, a number of people who made a pilgrimage to see this house discovered that it was not marked in any way, and spontaneously made the suggestion that the whole group should subscribe toward the cost of a commemorative tablet. The Austrian Society for Mental Hygiene contributed the balance of the funds and made all the arrangements for the erection of the plaque. The inscription on it reads:

In diesem Haus lebte und wirkete Sigmund Freud, in den Jahren 1891-1938, der Schöpfer und Begrunder der Psychoanalyse. Gestiftet von der 6. Jahresversammlung der World Federation for Mental Health im August, Wien, 1953.

Professor H. C. Rümke, of Utrecht, President of the World Federation for Mental Health, attended the ceremony and gave the first address, followed by Professor Hans Hoff, Professor of Psychiatry in Vienna and Chairman of the Austrian Society for Mental Hygiene. The wording on the plaque had been submitted beforehand to Miss Anna Freud, who had given her full approval to it.

On the evening before the unveiling, Dr. Winterstein, President of the Austrian Psychoanalytic Association, at a special meeting, read a paper on the relation between Freud and Goethe.
