Freud on Ferenczi

In 1914, Freud wrote in On the History of the Psycho-Analytic Movement:

"Hungary, so near geographically to Austria, and so far from it scientifically, has produced only one collaborator, Sandor Ferenczi, but one that indeed outweighs a whole society"

In 1923 he added a footnote:

“In Hungary a brilliant analytic school is flourishing under the leadership of Ferenczi”

When Freud wrote On the History of the Psycho-Analytic Movement,becoming the first historian of this new field of research, the Hungarian Psycho-Analytic Association had been in existence for only one year and had not yet produced the famous analysts who were later known as the Budapest School of Psychoanalysis.
