In a hilly Hampstead neighborhood of spacious brick-faced homes, Sigmund Freud, having just fled the Nazis, spent the last year of his life here. His daughter Anna, herself a noted figure in psychoanalysis, lived on in the same house until her own death in 1982. Sigmund’s study and library, which came from the doctors’ famed offices at Berggasse 19, Vienna, were left precisely as they were on the day he died—which he did on a couch, of course.
