This is a story series from the exhibit “Defiant Power of the Human Spirit” developed by the Victor Frankl Center, St Petersburg, Russia and is dedicated to Viktor Emil Frankl’s 110th anniversary. According to Dr. Frankl, a founder of the Third Viennese School of Psychotherapy, Logotherapy, the defiant power of the human spirit is inherent in each and every human. It enables us to discover meaning in the face of suffering. This exhibit is a call for conscious and responsible attitude to life and aims to educate us to be successful in facing life’s challenges.
