Excellent Documentary
16 March 2004 | by (Winnipeg, Canada) – See all my reviews

Excellent documentary showing that it wasn't just the Jews persecuted during the Holocaust, Jehovah's Witnesses were also victims. I haven't seen this film in a while but it's interesting to note that more Jehovah's Witnesses came out of the concentration camps than went in. They had all kinds of underground printing operations and even some of the songs that we sing presently at the Kingdom Hall were composed in the concentration camps. It's usually taught in school that just the Jews were the only victims which is incorrect. There were many religions and even nationalities that were persecuted. Jews were of course Hitler's main target but he wanted to eliminate others as well. I would recommend this film to those learning about the holocaust or curious about it. It is very informative and interesting.
