What I have tried to follow is how lack of sight effects (sic) the development of the child, their orientation, concepts, etc...This of course was an analytical study...I left Vienna before Professor Freud and his family. At the time of the Nazi's invasion I was recuperating from a serious illness. Professor urged me to leave, as if I got ill again I would only be a hindrance to them. I should wait in Switzerland for them. This I did and there I had many telephone conversations with Dr. Jones as I spoke quite often with Miss Freud on the telephone in Vienna and Dr. Jones and I shared whatever information we had..."
