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.
