Rebekka was Jacob Freud’s second wife. In this paper are reviewed the few historical data pertaining Rebekka Freud. It is suggested a new interpretation of some of Sigmund Freud’s dreams that could confirm Marie Balmary’s conjecture that Rebekka killed herself. It is showed in a succession of Sigmund Freud’s dreams occurred in the fall of 1898, the second Jacob Freud’s death anniversary, the recurrence of few topics dealing with unfortunate wedding and suicide. It is argued that these dreams are a clue of an unconscious Freud’s digging up his father’s past to solve Rebekka’s riddle.
