Description - Massaging Himmler: A Poetic Biography of Dr Felix Kersten by Anne M. Carson
The remarkable true story of a little- known humanitarian. Set in Nazi Germany, this poetic biography tells the remarkable story of little-known humanitarian, Dr Felix Kersten (masseur of Himmler) who rescued Jews during Holocaust. Himmler suffered from stomach cramps which no other practitioner could relieve; Dr Kersten massaged him daily during the war. He took no fee for his services, but used his influence to secure the release of many hundreds of thousands of prisoners. He received high honours from several European countries. Told in compelling language, from multiple points of view, this is an important addition to Holocaust literature, showing how one man was able to make a difference.
