Summary

I board a plane marked with the swastika and take the noon postal service flight from Stockholm to Berlin…
In the final days of World War II, a secret meeting takes place between a member of the World Jewish Congress and one of the most powerful Nazis in Germany – without the knowledge of the Führer.
Dr Felix Kersten, Himmler’s trusted personal physiotherapist, uses his unique position of influence to facilitate a meeting between the architect of the Holocaust and Swedish Jew Norbert Masur. A meeting which could turn Himmler’s thoughts away from the fading Führer and towards a course of action that could save thousands of lives.
With battle lines crumbling and lives in the balance, the two men must try to find a way to persuade Himmler to release the last surviving concentration camp prisoners contrary to Hitler’s orders that no Jew should outlast the regime.
Based on a remarkable true story, Ben Brown’s The End of the Night opened at The Park, London, in April 2022.
