Historical Antecedents

SIGMUND FREUD was born in Freiberg, in what is now Czechoslovakia, on May 6, 1856. The street on which he was born was later renamed Freudova Ulice in his honour. At the age of four he and his family moved to Vienna, where he remained until 1938 when the Nazi persecution forced him to flee to England, a year before his death.
