According to Timothy White, Rutherford helped German Witnesses from central Europe relocate to safer countries. I had never come across this before. Has anyone got any more information on this? Here is the quote:
German Witnesses elsewhere suffered also. The authorities in Yugoslavia, Hungary and Bulgaria feared German fifth-columnists and expelled German nationals from the country. Many Germans who left as refugees were Witnesses, and Rutherford bought farms for them in Australia, Africa and South America, which supported them while they continued the Witness work. (page 312)
Seems Rutherford was not as bad as you apostates are always making out after all.
