Given the setting the most pertinent questions–“Why is there evil? Against the background of Vienna racked by the Nazi takeover, Sigmund Freud is debating whether or not he should accept the offer of escape to Britain with his daughter on condition that he sign a paper stating that he has been well treated and has seen no sign of persecution of the Jews, even though he and everyone else visiteud of the activities of the Gestapo and the camps.
