[Original testimony in German]

I am grateful that through Christian Science...

I am grateful that through Christian Science my life now has meaning and purpose.

Before I took up the study of this Science, one sickness followed another. When I was seven years of age, and my mother had again taken me to a doctor because of a swollen knee, he said I was suffering from tubercular inflammation of the knee joint. He said the illness would be long drawn out and told us to report to the Charite, the well-known hospital in Berlin.

In the course of the next four years I underwent six operations. Because I was not healed, I was sent to a sanatorium for those suffering from tuberculosis, where fresh air and sunshine were to bring about a complete healing. Summer and winter I slept on an open balcony with only a roof over my head. The result was that in two years, instead of improving, my condition grew worse. The disease had spread to the kidneys. My whole body was swollen, and I was put on a diet. I was then taken to another hospital, and after I had been examined, my parents were told that it would be necessary to amputate my leg.
