'What binds us, pushes time away ... wrote David Oppenheim to his future wife, Amalie Pollak, on March 24, 1905.
Oppenheim, classical scholar, Austro-Hungarian army war veteran, one-time member of Sigmund Freud's Wednesday Group, and friend and supporter of Alfred Adler, played a minor role in the intellectual and cultural history of early twentieth-century Vienna. Across town, a failed art student making money from painting postcard watercolours would also make his mark on the city, but that would come much later, and with catastrophic consequences.'
