Thanks, Sandra. That is an interesting article.


Recently I read a book titled "Death Came on Mondays" that tells the autobiography of a young brother who was sentenced to death in Nazi Germany. In the appendix of that book, a historian explains in detail that same point: that constientious objection was included in the German Constitution after much debate due to the stand of our brothers and sisters in the Nazi camps.


Some political activists who were in prison with them were very impressed by their refusal to serve in the army or build weapons. When the war ended and some of those politicians participated in composing the new Constitution, they insisted that the right of all people (not just Jehovah's Witnesses) to constientious objection were recognized.
