  • Les mains du miracle de Joseph Kessel - 416 pages 


Writing Les mains du miracle (The man with the miraculous hands), the awarded author Joseph Kessel, member of the Académie Française, brought to light a little-known miracle of WWII. He chronicles the amazing story of Dr Felix Kersten, alternative medicine specialist and physician to one of the biggest dignitaries of the Third Reich, Heinrich Himmler. Kersten had the ability to alleviate Himmler’s stomach pains with his hands, using massage and manipulation, and managed to obtain in return the release of thousands of concentration camp’s prisoners.
 
Avec Les mains du miracles, Joseph Kessel, auteur récompensé, a mis en lumière un miracle peu connu de la Deuxième Guerre mondiale. Il réalise une biographie romancée de l’incroyable histoire du Dr Felix Kersten, spécialiste des médecines alternatives et médecin de l’un des plus grands dignitaires du IIIème Reich. Kersten avait la surprenante faculté de soulager les maux de ventre d’Himmler avec ses mains, utilisant le massage et la manipulation, et a obtenu en échange la libération de milliers de prisonniers des camps de concentrations
