Gerhard and Hella Adler were German-Jewish born Jungian analysts, disciples of both Carl and Emma Jung themselves.  Escaping Nazi persecution in the 1930s, they settled in Britain and had a flourishing practice until their deaths, Gerhard in 1989 and Hella in 2009.  In addition to several influential volumes, they helped found the Society of Analytical Pscyhology in 1945 and the Association of Jungian Analysts in 1977.
