The Spirit of Camphill : Birth of a Movement, Paperback / softback Book

The Spirit of Camphill : Birth of a Movement Paperback / softback

Part of the Karl Koenig Archive series


Fleeing from Nazi Europe in the late 1930s, Austrian-born Karl Koenig and his colleagues founded the first Camphill community, for children with special needs, outside Aberdeen in the north of Scotland.

The seven essays by Koenig in this book explain the principles behind what would grow to become a worldwide movement. The insights in this book reveal the inner motivations that drove Koenig and his team to persevere with their social project, and help modern-day readers to understand how they succeeded in building a network that now numbers over one hundred communities in twenty countries around the world. Includes extensive diary excerpts, documents and photographs from the Karl Koenig Archive.
