DR. REITZUG SHARES AN AMAZINGLY WRITTEN COLLECTION OF HIS EXPERIENCES THAT HAVE IMPACTED MANY OF THE LESS FORTUNATE … AN INSPIRING EXAMPLE OF AN UNSELFISH LIFE COMMITTED TO THOSE OFTEN LIVING ON THE EDGE.”
- DICK FREDERICK, MEDICAL TEAMS INTERNATIONAL (Ret.)
“Pushing carts, pulling suitcases, carrying babies, and dragging old folks, the endless procession in winter coats and mud-caked boots struggles up wintry hills. Gaunt faces refl ect the silence that pervades when there are no more words to shout, when the well of tears has been drained, and the deluge of grief has drowned all other feeling. In a funeral cortège for a country and a way of life, the outcasts trudge on, mile after mile, hour after hour. At the top of a knoll, a weed-covered marker mutely announces the border of Albania. An Associated Press photographer standing next to it snaps a picture of the latest refugees from genocide.”
Three days later the picture became front page news. Seeing it awakened threads to Dr. Reitzug’s refugee past. In the anguished faces he saw his own family’s season on the run. Moved, he soon found himself practicing medicine in refugee camps and in the hard places of disaster.
Traveling by canoe, helicopter, Mekong River Speedboat, Land Rover, and Russian Jeep where there were no roads, Dr. Reitzug found heartache and joy, dodged danger, and ministered to the sojourners of our days in their season of need.
HENRY REITZUG was born in post-war Germany and moved to the United States at the age of ten. After a career in private practice Pediatrics, he retired in 2007, allowing him more time to serve the disadvantaged and the displaced around the world. His Evangelical Christian faith motivates and sustains him in this work. Currently he lives in Northern Scotland with his wife and is active with PRiME Tutors, sharing his Christian medical expertise in disadvantaged countries.
