In 1945, Leopold Engleitner (born
1905), survivor of the Buchenwald, Niederhagen and Ravensbruck
concentration camps, was on the run from the Nazis as a conscientious
objector. As one of Jehovahs Witnesses, his conscience would not
allow him to serve in Hitlers army.
Then, already an old man,
Engleitner, one of the worlds oldest concentration camp survivors,
began an amazing new career recounting his own experiences to ensure
the terror of that time is never forgotten. Sixty-one years after World
War II ended and in his 101st year, he undertook a remarkable tour of
lectures that took him clear across the United States.
