Wolf Messing - the greatest mystery of the twentieth century, a great telepath, a hypnotist and a people's artist. This is a symbolic figure, which in many respects outstripped its time and surpassed the politicians.
It still excites the imagination of the townsfolk and forces crowds of tourists to visit Vostryakovskoe cemetery in Moscow every year.
Messing was born in September 1899 in Poland. From his youth, Wolf Grigorevich participated in the rooms together with illusionists. Later he mastered variety telepathy (the ability to read thoughts through his hand).
The true companion and assistant Messing was Aida Mikhailovna Messing-Rapoport, who was with her husband until her death.
No reliable evidence of the genius of Messing was found, his adventures are considered no more than a talented hoax.
Miracle or a talented bluff
The name of Messing was admired by Einstein and Freud, withHis opinion was Stalin, and they say he was afraid of Hitler, who wanted to get the head of this man, as Wolf Messing, by imprudence, predicted his fate in the event of Germany's war with the USSR.
Stalin often invited Messing to himself toPersonally make sure of his abilities. One day the leader ordered Messing to come to the Kremlin, while forbidding anyone from the guards and the closest circle to let the Poles in. Nevertheless, with the help of his hypnotic abilities, Messing easily came to Stalin, rather than surprised the leader, moreover, he also left the walls of the Kremlin, passing by the alarm raised by the alarm.
Road to death
Messing lived more than 75 years. He was assassinated several times, as some politicians, both Soviet and foreign, were genuinely afraid of the Soviet predictor.
During the Second World War, Wolf GrigorievichInjured both legs. Messing performed a number of operations on the hips, after there was an operation on the iliac arteries, which, according to the medical records, was successful and ended with the recovery of the patient. Nevertheless, despite successful operations, Wolf G. Messing died on November 8, 1974 as a result of pulmonary edema and total renal failure. It is still unclear what caused the sharp deterioration in the state of health of Wolf Grigorievich. Someone believes that he was intentionally wanted to kill, someone believes that everything is due to the rather large age of the telepath.
Messinga was buried in Moscow on Vostryakovskiycemetery. Even during his lifetime Messing repeatedly said that he wanted to rest at the side of his beloved wife Aida Mikhailovna Messing Rapoport. At the grave of Messing on the 38th site, which united the spouses, there is a high marble monument. On her grave there is a bas-relief, on it - a portrait impression. A white monument stands beside his wife Utesova. It is on it tourists are guided.
