News Brief

A memorial marker was erected and the park in front of the University of Vienna was named Sigmund Freud Park to honor the Vienna-born father of psychoanalysis. The marker, which carries the inscription, “The voice of sanity is soft,” taken from one of Freud’s works, was unveiled last week by Mayor Helmut Zilk. At the unveiling ceremony, Zilk said the park and the marker are intended to serve as an act of reconciliation by the city of Vienna with one of its greatest sons. “Sigmund Freud cannot be separated from this city,” Zilk said. “He has formed the image of Vienna as no one else.”
