Their lives were ruined Families of MK Ultra survivors .

20  May  2018  .

By the time Phyllis Goldberg died in 2011, she  spent the last 20 years of her life institutionalised  complete vegetable,  her niece recounts  an  infant .

In the cracked sepia photograph Marlene Levenson holds, her aunt is a young, optimistic woman   only 19 years old, pursuing a career as a nurse.

But after an admission to the Allan Memorial Institute in 1945 to treat a bout of mild depression, Levenson says that something in her aunt snapped .

When she would be with us, on weekends and so on, she didn't  communicate. She laughed for no reason. Her gait was very different,  Levenson explained.  She couldn't  dress herself   she couldn't  do anything for herself .

Small moments of affection   a pat on the head between aunt and niece, for example   elicited painful reactions from Goldberg .

When you went to pat her, just as a gesture, she would cringe, Levenson said.  That bewildered me  not realising, or understanding, she had electric shock equipment put on her head so many times that it [remained] in her subconscious .

The extent of Goldberg  treatment   or mistreatment  while in the care of   Dr. Donald Ewen Cameron at the Allan Memorial Institute, would remain an encumbering family secret for years .

There was a question mark all these years, but my parents didn't  want to talk about it  Levenson said.  Quite frankly, I don't  think they knew the extent of what was done to her .

Dr. Cameron  the first chairman of the World Psychiatric Association, and president of both American and Canadian psychiatric associations  was recruited by the CIA in the 1940  after they caught wind of his  psychic driving  concept .

He had been hoping to correct schizophrenia by  erasing   existing memories and reprogramming the psyche. The CIA, however, sanctioned Cameron  research in hopes it would one day be used to  crack spies .

He was reportedly paid $69,000 between 1957 and 1964 to conduct experiments for MK Ultra  a mostly illegal venture that combined the use of paralytic drugs, shock therapy, LSD, medically-induced comas, and alleged sexual abuse. Some patients were exposed to repetitive messages for days .
