[Original testimony in German]

In 1939 I suffered from blood...

In 1939 I suffered from blood poisoning, inflammation of the kidneys, and uremia. Because I was alone and had no one to take care of me, I was subjected to medical attention. According to the doctors' opinion, my condition was hopeless.

One doctor wanted to send me to a sanatorium. I pointed to the textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, and said, "With that, I am not afraid." A dear relative was sent for, and she took me to her home in another city. The next day a Christian Science practitioner came to see me. She took up prayerful work for me, and in a week I was able to get up.

I had not taken any medicine, nor had I adhered to the diet prescribed by the doctors. I talked with one of the doctors some time later, and although I told him exactly what had occurred, he was skeptical. "Then you were very lucky," he said. But I knew that my healing was not the result of luck. I am now seventy years of age and am in good health.
