662 Steinbach Nutcracker Dc. Eisenbarth
Hello, may I introduce myself?
Dc. Eisenbarth is my name, I was born
in 1661 in Upper Pfalz, a state in Germany now, and I died near Hannover
in 1727. Stein- bach folkart manufacturer revived me again. During my
lifetime I was a healer and successful doctor and knew more about
medicine to cure the many illnesses than anybody arround me. I had to
offer my services and sell my ointments in the streets which made me
almost a pitchman in medicine.
How many people today still think about
me is proved by the fact that the Deutsche Bundespost (German Mail
Service) issued a special stamp 1976, an opera was written about me in
1921, and somebody even wrote a novel about me.
For over 100 years children have been
singing a rhyme about me: I am Dc. Eisenbarth, widdewiddewittbumbum, I
cure people in may own way, widdewiddewittbumbum, I make the lame ones
walk again, and the blind ones see again... It was not easy in my days,
as I had to give a narcosis with a wooden hammer, listen to the heart
beat with a primitive stethoscope and had to use the money syringe for
other circulation problems.
