Opening of “Jehovah’s Witnesses: Faith Under Fire”
February 18, 2017
Jehovah’s Witnesses: Faith Under Fire is an exhibition that focuses on Jehovah’s Witnesses in the Holocaust.
Jehovah’s Witnesses, a Christian community of 35,000 in Germany and occupied lands, refused to confirm 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. This exhibition documents the story of Jehovah’s Witnesses in the Holocaust and provides an in depth look at ordinary people who followed their conscience in the face of tyranny.
On display February 18, 2017 – July 16, 2017 at The Florida Holocaust Museum.
