Holocaust Survivor Speaks at BC
this is from oct 6 so forgive me if this has already been posted.
the article is standard stuff. but the comments from the public are more interesting.
Leopold Engleitner of Austria speaks in quiet German, but the story he tells speaks volumes. At 99, he has watched history unfold, and is one of the oldest living Holocaust survivors; he lived through three concentration camps.
Last night, Engleitner shared his story at Barnard as part of an ongoing series of public forums on the concept of non-violence, organized by Professor Dennis Dalton.
Engleitner, a Jehovah's Witness, spoke through fellow survivor and translator Robert Wagemann.
As a Jehovah's Witness, his story is unique, because, unlike other Holocaust victims, Jehovah's Witnesses were offered the chance to gain their freedom by signing a document denouncing their faith and recognizing the supreme authority of the Nazi regime.
Not certain why you think the article is standard stuff?A 99 Year old Man telling his experiences from a Nazi death camp,nearly executed twice?
Sounds to me as though the Audience thoroughly respected this Man . Jw or not,he lived his faith and has my utmost respect.
ah fleaman i meant no disrespect.. i meant standard stuff in asmuch as the article and the mans testimony had no surprises. i find it remarkable that at 99 he is able to go and tell his story. and yes keeping faith all these years is due respect i'd rather be like him than be floundering trying to find something to have faith in again!.
the main reason i posted it is the comments at the bottom from people. . i enjoyed the diversity of the educational levels of the ones posting about the story.
I agree with you candidly....it is good when all People can respect the firm resistance to tyranny.
