"This book chronicles the career of Dr. Felix Kersten, a gifted physician whose most infamous patient was Nazi SS chief Heinrich Himmler. Kersten, an alternative-medicine specialist, could alleviate Himmler's severe and chronic abdominal pain using massage and manipulation, therapy so effective that Himmler came to depend on Kersten for his physical and psychological well being. Kersten boldly used the resulting emotional leverage over Himmler to win release from the fate of the Gestapo for victims of Nazi persecution, first a few at a time, then in increasing numbers until thousands of Jews and other persecuted peoples were saved. The Man with the Miraculous Hands is an account of a little-known miracle of World War II."--Jacket
