The opening roundtable examined the experiences two prominent psychoanalysts, Otto Kernberg and Heinz Kohut who were forced to emigrate from Vienna as the Holocaust approached. Dr. Kernberg spoke about his life and career considering his emigration experience, and Tom Kohut, PhD, spoke about how the emigration experience of his father Heinz Kohut influenced his personal and professional life and work. How both men have shaped American psychoanalysis was examined. This discussion was moderated by Nancy McWilliams, PhD.
