Curriculum vitae about the time, since I met Bruno Gröning, until today
Although the original document bears no date, based on other archival materials may be assumed that Josette Gröning wrote her resume in late November / early December 1956.
The spelling has been adapted to the current spelling guidelines.
I, Josette Groening born. Duffossé was born on 4.2.1921 in Gonnehem near Lille (France). In August 1950 I came to Germany for the following reason:
I had a friend in Lille who had a liver and bile disease and was almost blind. The doctors had pronounced as incurable. Since many French newspapers had written about my husband under the title: "Bruno Gröning, the German miracle healer" and especially about the fact that my husband had many successes, my friend and I, as her escort, wanted to visit him. I wanted to ask for help for my friend.
We met my husband in Munich with the naturopath Enderlin. At the time, my husband made a very unapproachable and reserved impression on me; so that at first, I felt quite intimidated by him and did not have the courage to approach him. However, after talking to him and telling him the reason for our presence, my husband was kind and friendly. He asked my friend and me to take a seat in the lecture room and then he spoke to all of us people who had gathered there, all of whom had come to make a request for help. Since I already knew some German and was able to speak a little. I was able to understand my husband and, to my astonishment, I realized that he was not talking about diseases nor healings, but about faith and trust in the divine order. At that times I did not understand why he spoke this way and did not do any examinations or made any diagnoses. When I asked him about it, he explained that he never did this and that it is was not necessary at all.
My friend and I stayed in Munich for 14 days, and it was during this time that I noticed to my horror, how much my husband was exploited, especially by Mr. and Mrs. Enderlin; how the donations given to my husband (money and small gifts and attentions) disappeared in these people’s pockets. I realized that no one was around my husband who was really honest, and I sincerely felt I had to defended him. He was just like a milking cow for those people. And so I felt obliged to draw Bruno Groening's attention to the Enderlin's business dealings.
During an extensive conversation with Bruno Gröning, he confessed to me, that up to that day, he had been surrounded only by dirty thinking people, whose only intention was to make business out of him. He had lost confidence in all of those surrounding him, but he also said, that the time would come for him to be given a sincere, honest person who understood his task and stood by him, so that he could free himself from evil businessmen.
This conversation made me think seriously, especially since I found out that his statements which he expressed in few words were based on truth, because I myself had experienced the rabid action of Enderlin. For example, Enderlin demanded 10 DM from my friend and I wanted to talk to him privately after we had already paid the official entry fee for the meeting with Bruno Gröning. Even though I had already told Mr Enderlin, that we had no more German money, because foreign exchange regulations were very strict in those days. The Enderlin’s were ruthless in their demands, and wanted to throw us out of the house if we did not pay what they demanded.
So I spoke of Enderling’s demands to Bruno Groening, who knew nothing about this, since the Enderlins put all the money in their own pockets. He then ordered that we did not have to pay anything because we were poor. The Enderlin’s were very angry about this. But then I also needed to find out from what kind of greedy people my husband was surrounded by and became more and more convinced that I had met an honest, sincere and helpful character and that this man necessarily needed a reliable helper on his side. His restraint and kindness also encouraged me to speak to him about the issue of "women" at a fitting opportunity, because I also found out that Bruno Gröning was literally haunted by women.
He told me that he knew that, but that he was not at all interested in those kind of women, but that problem had to be solved as well, as it also casted his work and himself personally in a very bad light.
All this information, and the knowledge of the dangers to which my husband and his work were exposed, impressed me so deeply that I decided to return to Bruno Groening, after my friend became healed from her gallbladder and liver pain and she felt an immediate sense of relief. Even after only 3 days she was able to see again, and I returned to Bruno Groening after I brought her back home and I said I would do so when I left.
After about 3 weeks, I found myself back in Munich, because I was determined to pull my husband out of the clutches of his exploiters.
The countless letters destined for my husband were also opened by the Enderlins, and the money in them was stolen by them. The Enderlin's made it impossible for my husband to gain access to the mail received which was addressed to him. Although my husband often asked for it, he was told by the Enderlins that everything was fine.
At that time I was living in a small hotel while my husband stayed at Enderlin’s home. Two weeks after I arrived, my husband gave up his association with the Enderlins. We had found an apartment in Riederau am Ammersee and so I was able to bring some order here into my husband’s business papers and letters.
There my husband was looking for the journalist Dr. Trampler, who already knew my husband from Rosenheim.
The apartment in Riederau, however, was not finally awarded to us and so we moved after 3 months to Uffing to a pension owned by acquaintances, and my husband held once or twice a week lectures in Gräfelfing in the pension Weikersheim.
I found out that after having met someone who was on his side and who was honest and stood by him, my husband now became more relaxed and not so harassed anymore.
In 1951, I became my husband’s private secretary and then I gained access to accurate knowledge of all the events surrounding him.
It made me think - and I followed everything very carefully - that my husband was not being rightly understood about the whole nature of his activity, which was quite different from that of non-medical practitioners and doctors, and I myself was racking my brains about where the mistake was. Today I know that my husband's life is quite different from the one that other people go through. He himself had not thought it necessary to tell the world what his activity meant and what it actually consisted of.
I was ready to blame and ask the court for all the many unjustly filed charges and lawsuits, the reason why they didn’t want to understand my husband. Most of them were due to the malice of people and authorities resulting from their own ignorance. But now they should understand my husband and closely scrutinize his actions and lifestyle. They should make the effort to give up their wrong thinking and see that my husband is goodness himself, and that he acts only out of philanthropy and helpfulness as he is directed by his inner soul. For only because of his philanthropy and willingness to help, my husband was ever able to give people their lost divine good.
As I realized during the course of the years of being with my husband, he has helped many people to regain their inner spiritual order through his purely human-divine attitude.
I would also like to express that actually non-malicious people, influenced by materialistic thinking people, were themselves subject to malevolence and materialism and therefore acted in a malicious way unwillingly - including in front of my husband.
I could never understand how one could reproach my husband for violating the Non-Medical Practitioners Act, because that was not applicable to him inasmuch as my husband:
1. stated that everyone seeking help (whether alone or in a group) had strict instructions, not to mention illness,
2. pointed out in every possible way, that he did not treat sick people,
3. He referred people at all time in their lives to turn to physicians for treatment as they had been granted the right to treat and prescribed medication for them.
In addition, my husband has never prescribed or given any remedy or medication.
My husband captures people from the purely spiritual side by leading them to self-discipline and self-awareness, so that man knows what he wants, and learns that he needs to believe in the good and live and act according to this.
I could keep on going on to describe what I was able to learn by my husband's side - and I want to emphasize - that my husband knew how to awake confidence in every human being and to made clear to everyone that they should also have trust in their doctor. My husband said very often to people that just as any person with a disorder has regained confidence in his doctor and his health has improved by regained 60%, as the regained trust in his doctor persists, he will soon recover and heal totally.
By right, my husband should be rewarded rather than fought against by the entire medical profession for these instructions. And I was deeply shaken by the fact that instead of doing this, he was going through one process after another for the sake of incomprehension and their wish to not understand him. Especially the charge against my husband for violating the Non-Medical Practitioners Act has filled me with sadness, grieving for the fact that my husband's activity should be stopped for lack of understanding, when this help which he gives to people was only a blessing to them. And any honest and pure person who would simply bother to understand my husband correctly would have come to my belief much earlier.
In one point, I could not understand my husband in the past, namely, that he calmly let everything go without resisting. He explained this to me in this way: that he had to endure everything in order to make a precise statement as to how far away his opponents were from divine order. My husband often told me that he had to give everyone, including his opponents, the opportunity to go out, talk and act, and then tell them what he thought was wrong. My husband taught me for example to understand that it is impossible to describe a person who intended to steal as a thief, you have to allow him to act first, so that then you can really prove that his thoughts lead him to act.
I can now also understand that people who have lost their peace - as my husband possessed it - are no longer able to create orderly relationships in and around themselves.
In 1952, good friends offered us an apartment in Grafrath, where we also moved to. At that time, my husband often gave lectures because many people asked us in writing. They could do this now, since we now had a fixed address.
In November 1953, the Groening Union was founded. His seat was and is in Stuttgart. To be closer to this association, we moved to Plochingen (Neckar), where we still live today. We got married on 25.6.1955.
Again and again people came from time to time, who offered themselves as employees to my husband, however, they were not accepted, except for a certain Egon-Arthur Schmidt, now living in Heidelberg, Römerstr. 65, who already knew how to sneak in as manager (in Herford) in 1949 and, as my husband often told me, was one of the worst exploiters. In 1949, my husband had already refused Mr. Schmidt after he realized that Schmidt was not acting correctly. Schmidt returned to my husband in October 1952, asked for his forgiveness and knew how to regain his old job with my husband. In 1955 we realized that Schmidt was again pursuing his own goals. He wanted to become the managing director of the Groening Union. After the entire board of the Gröning Union rejected him and he realized that my husband had seen through him as well, he separated from my husband and now he causes my husband the greatest difficulties through trials. For that reason alone, it was necessary for me to step out of that connection with my husband.

SPEECH OF BRUNO GRÖNING 9th of September 1949
during the afternoon before the NIGHT of the GREAT HEALINGS happened.in front of thousands of people waiting at Traberhof near Rosenheim,
My dear seekers of healing!
When I walked upon this land a few days ago, I came first here on this balcony and saw the terrain in front of me and in fact I already had the same image before my eyes, as I now see it before me.
I will not speak of my fight. No, it is not a fight; it is a matter of course that I've got my way to transmit the healing of our Lord God to you all, who had waited for years to be cured.
Great applause of listening people. -
In short words: I 've had no quiet hour, and I give this up for my further entire life. I am now just here for you and feel obliged to give my whole life for your health. (...)
It isn't necessary that one or another reports his suffering to me. I know much, much more than anyone person can only think. If one or another has found the way to me and asked for help for his family, without telling me, who was the sick one, where he lives, what kind of suffering he had, so I was able and am able further, to describe those patients closely about their sick bodies; as I also am able to say what a kind of human child each person is, with all of his passed life up to this hour. Everything I've told him and I was able to take off the disease from the shoulders also of those people on the remote way by saying: "Go answer the phone or try to connect with this patient as soon as possible". So the patient was healthy; but for this purpose, one has to pay the utmost confidence to me!
There are also cases that doctors have come to ask for help for their seriously ill patients and I told them what kind of diseases they've had and I've told them that they should look at the clock, that from this hour the patient received his health. This was confirmed many times by the doctors.
I'm not talking to you, to make propaganda for me; no, but, as elsewhere, to help people and to heal people. This assistance, this healing happens only in the name of God. Not I am doing it; I am nothing, the Lord God is everything!
There are people who believe that if they come to me, then they have to sacrifice days or even weeks and as long to wait here until they are completely healthy. No, that's wrong; that's mistrust. "Who distrust that one remains," I told you, and say it today. And who has faith, that one goes home. And so I wish to you all - as you stand here - the best health. Detach from disease and receive health. This will be done in the name of God! -
- Applause of the people listening -
You don't need to have any mistrust, when you just feel nothing at this moment. Mostly it happens immediately. But you have firstly to make yourself free from your sins; free from your wickedness, to take up health. I'll give you to know that health is something big, something good and that it is purely divine and Lord God will not touch on those human bodies that are not yet freed from sins or on those who not thinking to enter the path to God .
- Thank shouts from the crowd. -
You are not obliged to thank me for this - thank all the Lord God!
- Applause by people listening. -
I am willing to help all people - to heal all people. Everybody of you has to pay attention and shouldn't say, "Mr. Groening, help me!" Pay attention and observe yourselves; take up the health into your body. Then everything is done. There won't be one, there won't be ten, there will be hundreds or even all of you who get healed; some earlier, some later. But please pay attention. I have said that you once have to be selfish in life (that is, when it comes to your healing) and that means to be healthy.
It is nothing new when one has been paralyzed for 10, 20, 30, 40 years, that he can now get up at once walk.
It's nothing new that people who have never had the eyesight for 30, 40 and 50 years, now suddenly can see again or that people who were hearing impaired or deaf their lives long, yes, even people who had no eardrum, they got back their hearing ability. It's up to yourself! I will remain here for a while and wait until here and there and everywhere will happen something.

Vegetarian Universe No. 10 of October 1953, p. 6 – Complete text version created from the original layout
Once again: Pros and cons Bruno Gröning
by Anny Baroness Ebner von Eschenbach
As a member of the Circle of Friends to Bruno Gröning and a longtime vegetarian and subscriber of the "V.U." (Vegetarian Universe, journal) I want to help you with this letter, to give a truthful answer to those who are upset about that an article appears in "V. U." about "the nonvegetarian and smoker Bruno Gröning".
I just had the opportunity to personally converse with Mr. Bruno Gröning about the answer by your editorial in the August sequence 8 of "V. U.". I read him your little response items, after having assured him that the same is written in a decent, even generous spirit, because he refuses to waste his time and thoughts to negative force, mobbing hostility. A sufficient number of these have indeed emerged in recent years, and I also had one of this kind with me ("Münchner Merkur". 7 July 1953, under the paragraph "diary").
After the sentence of your "V. U. "- article:"Bruno Gröning, as important as he is, would be much more significant as a vegetarian and Non-smoker", Bruno Gröning said: "Yes, that's true, but what does my even greater skill help me, if I do not get the possibility of having cleared the way to me for the healing seekers and when I cannot transfer the healing power! I do smoke and drink coffee exactly for the reason that I can retain the current which often comes over me with such power. Previously, I therefore, even used to drink alcohol, but this was completely switched off by me. I also already smoke less, and do not depend on cigarettes.
Vegetarianism I fully affirm, because I stand against the killing and destruction of life. Through me, many were already converted into vegetarians, yes, even rawfoodists." "Yes," I said, "that's right. Recently, I spoke with a Rosenheim resident, who told me that he rejects all killing of animals since a meeting with you, was converted into rawfoodist and has transformed his entire life style into Nature connectedness. "
Mr. Gröning continued speaking: "I barely eat anything at all, because only a few mouthfuls are sufficient to saturate me, exactly like I need no sleep. When I eat, I get tired. I then eat only matching foods, many vegetarians suffer just from the too-much and too-various-food.
I can prove that my body does not accept the strong poisons of nicotine, alcohol and caffeine, I'm never sick, I master my body. Not because people want it from their point of view I shut off these deficiencies, but when it is necessary for me, it happens."
Mr. Gröning allowed me to make this conversation available for you. I myself would like to add some observations. Bruno Gröning is constantly on the go and always comes together with people from all kinds of society layers the guest of whom he then usually is. Thus, often he does not want the hosts to face difficulties by requiring from them a certain type of food. In most cases, he eats nothing, is however pleased when being offered nuts, fruit and salads.
He consumes much liquid, especially apple juice and mineral water and, as he once told me, this is his diet simultaneously and in addition this is conditioned by the current, the heat of which would burn him otherwise. I was pleased with your generous response to the letters, because we friends felt some concern that some ignorant individuals would again gossip about Bruno Gröning in an irresponsible, mercenary manner.
Only those can assess and understand Bruno Gröning reasonably, who can rise to the spiritual level of selfless, self-sacrificing, devotional love for suffering humanity, to whom he sacrifices his whole personal life, only to help, to have the human brothers and sisters find their way back to their divine origin and thus also to their health. Since we (also Mr. Gröning) are opponents of vaccination, then I would like to report also a case which I personally experienced lately and pick out from among other healing cases of our Bruno Gröning community.
A grandmother asked me for help through Bruno Gröning for her grandchild in Carinthia, who since smallpox vaccination in 1952 had terrible convulsions and high fever and thus, was slowly lingering increasingly ill. No doctor could help. I asked Bruno Gröning for distant healing of the to me unknown child, and he gave me an "addressed" (a blessed or consecrated) object. This we sent to Carinthia. The child touched the object and has since been freed of all ailments. The parents stood in front of a miracle.
After eight weeks, they sent a written affidavit medicinal report after they had observed the child further and found that it had increased from day to day forces and that of the ailments nothing had occurred., and he gave me an "addressed" (consecrated) object. This we sent to Carinthia. The child touched the object and has since been freed of all ailments. The parents stood in front of a miracle. After eight weeks, they sent a written affidavit medicinal report after they had observed the child further and found that its strength had increased from day to day and that of the ailments nothing had occurred any more.
Bruno Gröning never demands anything for aiding assistance, and the parents had already spent a fortune in medical expenses for the child. You see from this brief report that the "sacred" lines of the "V.U." even become more "sacred", if you make these lines, available in favour of such a great person and skilled individual, like Bruno Gröning and finally publish the "essentials" about Bruno Gröning.
With warmest regards,
Anny Ebner von Eschenbach
