    which was about Bettelheim and other experts' theories about what supposedly caused autism. Horrific, deeply upsetting. I just cannot imagine what those kids and those parents went through.

    Bettelheim was a Holocaust survivor. It sounds like his theories about autism and his judgment were affected by his own terrible experiences.
