    Overview

    Summary
    Erik Jan Hannussen, a popular Jewish stage magician and mentalist from Austria, wowed audiences and amassed a small fortune in the 1920s and 30s. Perhaps his greatest trick, however, was that of becoming Hitler's personal psychic and advisor, moving comfortably in Nazi circles for many years while hiding his Jewish heritage.
