Find the book


Max Liebster’s account of his experience in the labor and death camps of the Nazis is an absorbing story of his despair and ultimate return to hope and faith through his encounter in the inferno with the incredible faith and fortitude of the Jehovah’s Witnesses. Written with clarity and dedication, his book is testimony to himself and the Witnesses who, suffering unbelievable hardships and under penalty of death, nevertheless resisted the Nazis in a manner consistent with the message of Jesus and the intense faith of the early Christians. His book is essential reading for those who have been disillusioned by the behavior of the mainstream Christian Churches in the face of the greatest moral crisis of modern history.
