Jehovah’s Witnesses: Faith Under Fire

September 13, 2014 - January 11, 2015

-

Faith Under Fire, a traveling exhibition created for The Florida Holocaust Museum by the Arnold-Liebster Foundation, chronicles the Nazi persecution of Jehovah’s Witnesses and the Witnesses’ nonviolent resistance to Nazi terror inside and outside the camps.

Jehovah’s Witnesses, a Christian community of 35,000 in Germany and occupied lands, refused to conform to the Nazi ideology of hate. They suffered severely for their belief in nonviolence and their utter rejection of racism. Thrown into Nazi camps, they became eyewitnesses of Nazi genocide. As historian John Toland wrote, this is “a story of human courage that must be heard.”
