This exhibition explores the incredible life of psychoanalyst Muriel Gardiner through family photo albums, unpublished documents and Muriel’s own autobiography, Code Name Mary.

An unsung hero, she helped save the lives of countless individuals from the Austrian fascist and Nazi regimes whilst frequently in danger herself.

"I had not known of the intensity of your political activities in Vienna, only the vaguest rumours, and I was quite fascinated, even a bit envious. I like my own life very much, but if that had not been available and if I had to choose another one, I think it would have been yours". Anna Freud in a letter to Muriel Gardiner written in 1972.
