Jehovah’s Witnesses: Faith Under Fire
February 18 - July 16, 2017
Florida Holocaust Museum
55 5th Street South
St. Petersburg, FL 33701
This 12-panel exhibition created by the Arnold-Liebster Foundation chronicles the Nazi persecution of Jehovah’s Witnesses and the Witnesses’ nonviolent resistance to Nazi terror inside and outside the camps.
Their story is one of immeasurable faith and courage, especially since they always had before them the opportunity to seek relief by signing a declaration to renounce their faith and give their allegiance to Hitler. They showed that it was possible to stand up against Nazi terror, even though they were a minority. Their story can inspire visitors to stand up against hatred and violence no matter what others do, or fail to do.
“What enabled us to offer moral resistance and stay firm in the face of a tyrannical state?
“May these reflections, testimonies, and narratives help our visitors understand that intolerance leads to exclusion, persecution, and ultimately annihilation.
“May these historical accounts likewise inspire strength and courage in those suffering oppression of all kinds.”
