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.
