The Devil's Doctor

The Devil's Doctor

The true story of one mans courageous fight against unspeakable evil

In May 1940, as Nazi panzers overran the Netherlands, Felix Kersten received a summons he dared not refuse. A successful and prosperous physical therapist who had ministered to the Dutch royal family, Kersten was "asked" to forsake his adopted home in the Netherlands and become personal physician to Nazi Reichsfhrer Heinrich Himmler. While others might have spent the ensuing years paying fearful obeisance to this monstrous and unpredictable master, Kersten discovered that he had both the means and the courage to manipulate the surprisingly nave Himmler. In doing so, he saved thousands of lives and actually persuaded Himmler to join in a plot to overthrow Himmlers hero, Adolf Hitler.

The Devils Doctor tells the incredible true story of how one brave man did everything he could, and more than he ever imagined, to turn the corrupt and maniacal Nazi power structure against itself and prevent the slaughter of thousands. This riveting and compelling tale will convince you that one persons courage and determination truly can make a difference.
