    There was a post about the holocaust museum considering some info about the JW's and the declaration made in the thirties. Rutherford made anti=semitic remarks etc? Need that info and can't find it. Thanks. W.Once

    I have an article written by Jim Penton many years ago. I would have to check with him if I may scan for you. Do you want me to ask Jim?

    If you want to know the names of JWs who died at Auschwitz, then Google for the book: "Imprisoned for their Faith. Jehovah’s Witnesses in KL Auschwitz", by Teresa Wontor-Cichy (Oswiecim 2006).

    These poor people died because of Rutherford's lies and should not be forgotten. The Nazis kept detailed personal records of most of their millions of victims.

    If you do some searching after "googling" the author's surname (Wontor-Cichy) you will uncover a number of related books on the JW victims of Rutherford and of the Nazis.

    I asked Jim Penton about his articles in his "Quest" magazine where he described the relationship between Rutherford and the Nazis. Here is his reply:

    "My latest book 'Jehovah's Witnesses and the Third Reich' contains a great many documents and gives a picture of how Rutherford and the German Branch tried to cozy up to the Nazis. Then, when the Nazis refused to pay any attention to them, Rutherford went on a rampage and caused the Witnesses in Germany to become martyrs by attacking the Nazis rather overtly. The information in 'Quest' is a bit dated."

    I have that book it is really worth the read

    Some of the things you're looking for might be in the "Timeline of JWs lead-
    ers in regard to human government, war, propaganda, and persecution" on p.6 of
    the "GTJ Brooklyn" research I have so far.

    An easy way to find the timeline is to just scroll down to where the pictures
    of JWs leaders start.
