DALLAS HOLOCAUST MUSEUM

The Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance teaches about the past, to learn for today, in order to impact the future. A not-for-profit 501 (c) (3) since 1984, at our inception we were known as the Dallas Memorial Center for Holocaust Studies and were located in the basement of the Jewish Community Center building on Northaven Road in North Dallas. A group of local survivors created the Holocaust Center to preserve the memory of what they had endured.

Nazi persecution of the Jehovah’s Witnesses - video

An interview with Hermine Liska

When I went to school that day, a lot of excitement, everybody was in the schoolyard. The swastika flag was already there, and the headmaster stood in front of the flag and made a short speech, in the following sense: “Now we can forget the bad times of unemployment, everyone will get a job, no one will suffer from hunger, and the farmers will do better. Short and sweet, we are moving into the golden age. And all that we owe to our leader, Adolf Hitler

Why Did the Holocaust Happen?

Why Didn’t God Stop It?

Many who ask these questions have suffered extreme personal loss and seek not just answers but solace. Others see the Holocaust as the height of human evil, and they struggle to believe in God.

The Nazi takeover

Jehovah's Witnesses were subjected to intense persecution under the Nazi regime. The Nazis targeted Jehovah's Witnesses because they were unwilling to accept the authority of the state, because of their international connections, and because they were strongly opposed to both war on behalf of a temporal authority and organized government in matters of conscience.

Jehovah’s Witnesses: Victims of the nazi era | JWnews II

Even before 1933, despite their small numbers, door-to-door preaching and the identification of Jehovah’s Witnesses as heretics by the mainstream Protestant and Catholic churches made them few friends. Individual German states and local authorities periodically sought to limit the group’s proselytizing activities with charges of illegal peddling. There were also outright bans on Jehovah’s Witnesses’ religious literature, which included the booklets The Watch Tower and The Golden Age.

Jehovah's Witnesses: Germany 1933-1945 | JWnews II

Jehovah's Witnesses endured intense persecution under the Nazi regime. Actions against the religious group and its individual members spanned the Nazi years 1933 to 1945. Unlike Jews and Sinti and Roma ("Gypsies"), persecuted and killed by virtue of their birth, Jehovah's Witnesses had the opportunity to escape persecution and personal harm by renouncing their religious beliefs. The courage the vast majority displayed in refusing to do so, in the face of torture, maltreatment in concentration camps, and sometimes execution, won them the respect of many contemporaries

Propaganda Can Be Deadly | JWnews II

"YOU miserable Jew!" snapped the schoolteacher, as she slapped her seven-year-old student. She then invited the class to file by him and to spit in his face.

Both the teacher and the student—her nephew—knew perfectly well that the boy and his parents were not of Jewish descent. Nor were they Jewish by faith. Rather, they were Jehovah's Witnesses.

JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES: VICTIMS OF THE NAZI ERA | JWnews II

Founded in the United States in the 1870s, the Jehovah's Witnesses organization sent missionaries to Germany to seek converts in the 1890s. By the early 1930s, only 20,000 (of a total population of 65 million) Germans were Jehovah's Witnesses, usually known at the time as "International Bible Students."

In the Nazi years, about 10,000 Witnesses, most of them of German nationality, were imprisoned in concentration camps.

An estimated 2,500 to 5,000 Witnesses died in the camps or prisons.
