Gerhard Adler and Hella Adler
Gerhard was born in Berlin in 1904, studied under the psychologist Carl Jung in Zurich, and worked as an analyst and held a post in a child guidance clinic in England. His published works include: The Living Symbol: A Case Study in the Process of Individuation (1961), Studies in Analytical Psychology (1966), and Dynamics of the Self (1979). He co-edited the English translation of Jung's collected works (1953) and edited two volumes of Jung's correspondence (1973, 1984).
Hella was born in Berlin in 1907 and worked with Emma Jung in Zurich. Gerhard and Hella immigrated to England in 1936 to avoid Nazi persecution, and had two children, Michael (born in 1939) and Miriam (born in 1944). After the war, they lived in Hampstead, bringing up their family and seeing patients. Gerhard died in 1989, and Hella died in 2009.
