Summary
"As pacifists and citizens of "Jehovah's Kingdom," the Witnesses refused to swear allegiance to any world government, to contribute in the smallest way to the military, or to stop their active recruiting of converts. Because of their beliefs and their uncompromising integrity, Hitler viewed them as ideological foes of the Third Reich and targeted them for persecution, deportation, and murder." "The Jehovah's Witnesses and the Nazis is the first history in English to detail in the words of the Witnesses the course of their clash with Hitler and his SS."--Jacket
