Meet the Author: Edith Sheffer

Watch a May 2018 discussion of Asperger’s Children: The Origins of Autism in Nazi Austria

Publishers Weekly calls Edith Sheffer's new book "a revelatory, haunting biography of a gifted practitioner who chose to fall in line with the Nazi regime and the far-reaching consequences of that choice, for his own patients and for those still using and being labeled with the diagnostic concepts he originated."

She spoke about the book at a May 2018 Meet the Author event at the Museum. You can watch the presentation below, and shop for a signed copy at the Museum Store.
