Finnish Doctor Felix Kersten, a student of Tibetan medicine, became a favorite healer among the rich and famous in Germany during the 1930s. Married to a German woman, he settled in an estate outside of Berlin. Heinrich Himmler, head of the SS under Hitler, sought out Dr. Kersten to treat him for ongoing painful stomach cramps. Soon, Germany?s “minister of death? became dependent upon Kersten, and the doctor slowly used that dependency to bargain for the release of thousands of Jews from Nazi prison camps.
