"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

FILLING TWENTY VOLUMES, KESSEL'S NOVELS ARE BASED ON AN IMAGINERY WORLD CHARACTERIZED BY A DISPROPORTION WHICH CAN BE FOUND IN THE CHARACTER DRAWING, IMAGERY AND NARRATIVE TECHNIQUES. THE FIRST PART OF THIS THESIS DEALS WITH THE TREATMENT OF HISTORY. THE ELEMENTS COLLECTED THROUGH OBSERVATION AND RESEARCH FIT INTO A SYMBOLIC NETWORK MEANT TO THROW A LIGHT ON THEIR HISTORICAL OR ETHICAL SIGNIFICANCE. THE LITTERATY TYPE OF THE OFFICER GIVES WAY TO RASPOUTINE'S CHARACTER, INSTRUMENT OF EVIL, THEN TO THE FRENCH RESISTANCE, HOPES OF NATIONAL REGENERATION. KESSEL RESORTS TO MYTH IN ORDER TO ELUCIDATE THE ENIGMA SURROUNDING RASPOUTINE, OR TO ACCOUNT FOR THE SAVING PART PLAYED BY THE FRENCH RESISTANCE. THE SECOND AND THIRD PARTS BEAR ON CHARACTER CREATION AND THE HEROES' PROBLEMATIC SEARCH FOR HAPPINESS. THE EMBLEMATIC FIGURES OF THE NOMAD, THE ANARCHIST, THE ADVENTURER DON'T SUBMIT THEMSELVES WITH SOCIAL RULES. PROMPTED BY A FIERCE WILL, THE ADVENTURER FULFILLF HIMSELF IN THE EXERCICE OF A FREEDOM WHICH MAKES HIM COPE WITH EVENTS. HAPPINESS IMPLIES FROM A WAY OF LIFE WHICH LEADS CHARACTERS TO THROW THEMSELVES WHOLE HEARTEDLY INTO ACTION, AND TO LIVE THROUGH THE MOST INTENSE EXPERIENCES. THE FOURTH PART ANALYSES KESSEL'S POETICS. THE DEPICTING OF HEROIC OR SPECTACULAR DEEDS RELIES ON EXPRESSIONIST WRITING, ON THE COMBINATION OF VARIOUS LITTERARY DEVICES MEANT TO IMPART GREAT INTENSITY TO THE LANGUAGE. THENOVELIST INDULGES IN THE EPIC VEIN. HIS MAIN QUALITIES PARTAKE OF THE ART OF THE STORY-TELLER
