WW2 : Remembering those who suffered for Christ's sake

One Austrian prisoner observed: “They do not go to war. They would rather be killed than kill anyone else.”

Travelling exhibition: Banned and Persecuted - Jehovah’s Witnesses at Ravensbrück Concentration Camp and in East Germany’s Prisons




Heeding the words of the prophet Daniel (Daniel 3:17 et seq.), the Jehovah’s Witnesses did not try to escape imprisonment. They took it as a test of Jehovah’s will, and so the SS trusted them to work without guards in SS and private households, as well as on agricultural estates


In four chapters spread across sixteen panels, the exhibition looks at the Jehovah’s Witnesses and their persecution, before continuing on to the issue of reparations and today’s ways of commemorating their victims. The public can also visit tables that provide a closer look at the fate of six female and six male Jehovah’s Witnesses through additional documents and photos
