Nazis Ban Jehovah Witnesses When They Oppose Military Service

Nazis Ban Jehovah Witnesses When They Oppose Military Service

Jehovah's Witnesses at Niederhagen, 1945

The Nazi government bans the Jehovah's Witnesses because they oppose military conscription. Throughout the Nazi era the Jehovah's Witnesses will be consistently persecuted by the Nazis because they, in turn, consistently resist the demands of 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 ideology.
