Note: BBC (tree) Lucian Freud - What has made his family so successful? OR Freud family enotes, Freud museum picture library & products, encyclopedia, wikipedia "Sigmund was an Austrian neurologist who founded the psychoanalytic school of psychiatry. Freud is best known for his theories of the unconscious mind and the defense mechanism of repression, and for creating the clinical practice of psychoanalysis for treating psychopathology through dialogue between a patient, technically referred to as an "analysand", and apsychoanalyst. Freud redefined sexual desire as the primary motivational energy of human life, developed therapeutic techniques such as the use of free association, created the theory of transference in the therapeutic relationship, and interpreted dreams as sources of insight into unconscious desires. He was an early neurological researcher into cerebral palsy, and a prolific essayist, drawing on psychoanalysis to contribute to the history, interpretation and critique of culture.."

But Heinele died on June 19, 1923. In Vienna, Mathilde became friends with Ruth Mack Brunswick, who named her eldest daughter after her. After her husband's business suffered during the Great Depression, Freud helped financially while Mathilde opened a fashionable women's clothing store. Mathilde and her husband managed to emigrate to London on May 26, 1938, and so welcomed Freud at his arrival shortly thereafter. Mathilde Hollitscher opened another clothing story on Baker Street. She retired in 1960.." OR salus-institut.de ".. Robert, In Vienna, he spent most of his time playing chess in the cafe.

Note: Rosa was deported in Theresienstadt on August 28, 1942, at the same time as her three sisters, with whom she was living in a increasingly cramped apartment. According to a witness, during the Nuremberg trial, in October 1942 in the Treblinka concentration camp, the commandant of the camp to whom she introduced herself as Sigmund Freud's sister, examined her identification and "said that there was probably some mistake and showed her the railroad signs, telling her that there would be a train to take her back to Vienna in two hours. She could leave her belongings, go into the showers and, after bathing, her documents and her ticket to Vienna would be ready. Rose naturally went into the showers and never returned" (LeupoldLöwenthal, 1989)
Note: Mitzi, reunited with her sisters in Vienna after her husband's death, shared their fate in the Holocaust. She was deported to the concentration camp of Theresienstadt, on June 29, 1942, then to Maly Trostinec where she disappeared (Leupold-Löwenthal, 1989)

Note: Merry and whimsical and a music-lover, Alexander "was an excellent story-teller who could imitate the various accents of the characters in his stories, as his nephew would write (M. Freud, 1958, p. 17). On August 20, 1899, Freud wrote to his friend Dr. Wilhelm (see Fliess family): "Alexander was here for four days; he will lecture on tariff rates at the Export Academy and will be given the title and rank of professor extraordinarius after one year - much earlier in fact than I" (Freud, 1985c). With his expertise, he was responsible for organizing Freud's voyage to America in 1909. In 1936 he commissioned Wilhelm Victor Krauss to paint Freud's portrait. By shared decision, the brothers left a large sum (160,000 Austrian Schillings) to their four sisters that would have been sufficient for a comfortable living in Vienna; they saw no serious danger to their remaining in Vienna. Sigmund soon realized his mistake and at his request princess Marie Bonaparte attempted to secure their passage from Austria, but without success. Alexander gave up his Anglophobia and pro-German sentiments that dated to WW-1 to emigrate to London, where he also joined his son Harry. It was this latest who wrote to his aunts a letter they never receive and in which he described Sigmund's last days.
