Although she was regarded as a gifted clinician, Eugénie Sokolnicka lost her position at Sainte-Anne in 1923. She was removed from the hospital by the new director Henri Claude, who did not accept non-physician analysts. Sokolnicka focused on her own private practice, but her clientele diminished over the years. In the beginning of the 1930s she played no longer an important role in the psychoanalytic movement. The position of Freud's legitimate representative in France was taken over by Marie Bonaparte. Poverty, growing depressions, the threat from Nazism in Germany and a sense of rootlessness weighed on her and, in 1934, she took her own life.
