Persecution and Resistance of Jehovah's Witnesses During the Nazi Regime, 1933-1945

Hans Hesse
Edition Temmen, 2001 - 405 páginas

More than 50 years after the end of the Third Reich, Jehovah's Witnesses, like Sinti and Roma, continue to be forgotten victims in the broader public's consciousness. Only recently have historians and concentration camp memorials increasingly focused on this category of inmates who were marked and stigmatized in concentration camps with purple triangles. Through 22 articles, 19 authors employ the latest research in Persecution and Resistance of Jehovah's Witnesses during the Nazi Regime to summarize the multifaceted history of those prisoners in the Wewelsburg, Sachsenhausen and Moringen concentration camps. Comprehensively, this volume includes a lens on the persecution of the female members of Jehovah's Witnesses, who made up the largest group of inmates of the female concentration camps up until the beginning of the Second World War; contributions that for the first time deal with the hitherto largely unknown history of the persecution of Jehovah's Witnesses specifically in the GDR; and, to round out this volume's extensiveness, there also are around 120 documents and photos, previously mostly unseen.

Jehovah's Witnesses will always be Persecuted until Jehovah puts a stop to it. We have the Truth, and Satan knows it. He wants to prove, no one will serve Jehovah under scrutiny, but We as Jehovah's people, are proving Satan wrong, everyday. We Love Our God Jehovah, and We will stand by Our Father no matter what. Even if Our Lives are taken in Death, we know Jehovah has the Power to give us Our lives back. For He's Awesome and He's powerful, We Love You Jehovah. And as Jehovah's Witnesses We'll be coming to a Area or Door near You real soon!. No one will Stop this Preaching work, no one! For Jehovah has given Us a Command at Matt 28:19-20 Go, therefore and make Disciples of People of All the Nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father the Son and the holy spirit 20 teaching them to observe all the things I have commanded you. And look! "I am with you all the days until the conclusion of the system of things. "And that's just what We're going to do" :-) <3
