Document | Accession Number: 2017.461.1 | RG Number: RG-41.022

The personal archive of Frans Theodoor Dijckmeester (1917-2003). The collection consists of documents concerning the "Kersten" matters: the report, correspondence and newspaper clippings about Dr. F. Kersten. It also includes a report by Kersten about his network in the occupied Netherlands, and a German translation of an article by Prof. L. de Jong about Dr. F. Kersten, and corresponding letters.
Felix Kersten (1898-1960) was before and during WWII a personal physical therapist of Heinrich Himmler. Kersten used his contacts with Himmler to help people persecuted by Nazi Germany. He played a crucial role in saving of Finnish Jews and prisoners of Nazi concentration camps and had an influence on the Nazi politics in Scandinavian countries, especially Sweden and Finland.
