To the Presidents of the European Psychoanalytical Societies
Crowdfunding Freud Museum Vienna
today we want to inform you about a campaign for the restoration and modernization of the Freud Museum in Vienna which has been started by our Viennese colleague Dr. Bettina Reiter. We as EPF Executive ask you to support this campaign and we attach the following information:
The Freud Museum is facing a major refurbishment and modernization and as a private foundation it has to raise about one third of the necessary sum of 4.3 million €.
The campaign of Bettina Reiter focuses on the library of the museum, which is the largest psychoanalytical library in Europe and was initiated by Anna Freud. This library will be presented in new, larger and better equipped rooms and will also have several workstations besides an event hall. You can get an overview of the project here:
The campaign has set itself the goal of collecting € 100.000 by the end of the year. Here is the link to the crowdfunding project: https://www.respekt.net/freudspenden
We attach great importance to this project and therefore we ask you to forward the call for donations to your members.
Thank you very much!
