During the period of National Socialism, the religious beliefs, teachings and actions of the Jehovah's Witnesses were a public proclamation that approximated a way of life whose central tenets collided with those of the National Socialist state. Here was a small group of some 20 to 25,000 "average Germans" and those from other regions incorporated in to the Third Reich who were publicly proclaiming their belief in a kind of shadow state, which was in direct opposition to the Nazi regime. Here was a group that rejected the racial laws of the state, the oath of allegiance to Adolf Hitler, the German salute, and the duty to take up arms for Germany. We are familiar with the statistics: nearly 10,000 Jehovah's Witnesses imprisoned and at least 2,000 admited to Nazi concentration camps of whom at least half were murdered, over 250 by beheading..........Simone Arnold Liebster's autobiography.......brings a name and a voice to these statistics. It tells the story of spiritual resistance to a monstrous evil and does so through the eyes and memories of a child................Abraham J. Peck - Vice President of the Association of the Holocaust Organizations
