Famed life and business strategist Tony Robbins has received the movie rights to the Holocaust survivor Viktor Frankl’s book, “Man’s Search of Meaning.”
His struggle to acquire scripts
Robbins told the world in a podcast that he had been trying to acquire the rights of the movie for three long years and now that he has the rights, the script is in the process of being developed. He also explained that Frankl was an Austrian Jew who was imprisoned in the concentration camps in Germany during World War II. He also urges everyone who is having a tough time to go and read this book.
The book that moved him
While describing Frankl’s life he said that he only stayed alive by studying what made certain people live, because, at the camps, no one has the will to live, everyone loses hopes. Everyone in the book finds a reason to cling on to life like they’re going to live through the suffering so they can tell the story so that it never happens again.
The reason behind choosing this book
He also mentioned how he feels that the book is relevant and useful in today’s world, where we have no certainties of a future, amid the pandemic. It appears to be one of the moments when Katie Holmes posted a photo of herself with the book on Remembrance Day with the caption saying how beautiful and important that book was.
