The Phenomenon Bruno Groening
On the track of the "miracle healer"
2 film trailers
In the spring of 1949 thousands streamed to Herford in Westphalia. In the fall
of the same year up to 30,000 people daily were drawn to the "Traberhof" near
Rosenheim. An army of the wretched, the sick and suffering. They had only one
goal -Bruno Groening. For many it was the last hope. Beaten down by war, given
up by the physicians, these people had only one wish - to become well, to be
freed from misery and pain. Bruno Groening should help them. "The Phenomenon
Bruno Groening" traces the dramatic events of the time, proceeding on the trail
of this unusual man. These trailers provide a brief view of and highlight the
individual stations in the life work of Bruno Groening.

Life and Work of Bruno Groening
Information from the Bruno Groening Circle of Friends
A film by Thomas Eich
Born in Danzig in 1906, Bruno Groening achieved world fame in 1949 because of
the many healings he effected. When the media circulated the first sensational
reports, thousands of people from all over Europe and as far afield as America
converged on him wherever he appeared - and miraculous healings took place.
But the opposition to him was strong. The authorities, the medical fraternity
and the Church obstructed his work wherever possible, and until his death in
1959 he met with resistance and legal actions. Grete Häusler, who today heads
the Bruno Groening Circle of Friends, takes up the story after 1959, and people,
who have been cured by following his teachings, report their experiences.
