Bavarian Government Orders Suppression of Jehovah Witnesses

Purple Triangles worn by Jehovah's Witnesses in Nazi concentration camps

The Bavarian government issues order to officially suppress the Jehovah's Witnesses. The Catholic Church is instructed to report on anyone found to still be practicing that group's religion.

Throughout the Nazi era the Jehovah's Witnesses will be consistently persecuted by the Nazis because they, in turn, consistently oppose the Nazi government. Unlike other Christian groups, they are willing to risk their lives by standing on principle, refusing to collaborate with the state or appease Nazi demands.
