I read a news article on Viktor Frankl - very interesting. Before the war he established suicide prevention centers in Vienna for teenagers, and tried to help them find their unique meaning in life. It's based on his time in Auschwitz - not a happy place, but wise observations. I wouldn't call it depressing; I would call it observant of people in difficult circumstances and why some give up, and some keep hope alive. It's thought provoking in a positive way. I'm glad I know about this book. Good luck.(less) (Source: www.goodreads.com)
