Executed Witnesses of Jehovah RememberedON March 7, 2002, a memorial plaque was unveiled in the town of Körmend in western Hungary. It commemorated the death of three of Jehovah?s Witnesses murdered by the Nazis in 1945. The plaque is fastened to the wall of the present-day headquarters of the fire department on Hunyadi Road, where the public executions took place. The plaque was dedicated to the memory of ?Christians who were executed as conscientious objectors in March 1945. Antal Honisch (1911-1945), Bertalan Szabó (1921-1945), János Zsondor (1923-1945), 2002, Jehovah?s Witnesses.?
I think we should also remember those who were murdered by the Watchtower Society. Here are a few of the victims:

Now she was in the Valley Children?s Hospital in Fresno, California, U.S.A. She had been admitted there for what appeared to be a kidney infection. Tests revealed, however, that she had leukemia. The doctors treating Lenae determined that packed red blood cells and platelets should be transfused and chemotherapy started immediately.
Lenae said that she wanted no blood or blood products, that she had been taught that God forbids that, as shown in the Bible books of Leviticus and Acts. ?For the holy spirit and we ourselves have favored adding no further burden to you, except these necessary things, to keep abstaining from things sacrificed to idols and from blood and from things strangled and from fornication.? (Acts 15:28, 29) Her parents supported her in this stand, but Lenae stressed that it was her decision and it was very important to her.
Such consideration was not accorded 17-year-old Crystal Moore when she was admitted to Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center in New York City. She was suffering from inflammatory bowel disease. Upon her admission to the hospital, Crystal, along with her parents, emphasized repeatedly her refusal to accept blood. She did not want to die; rather, she wanted medical treatment consistent with the Bible?s command to abstain from blood.?Acts 15:28, 29.
Lisa?s first night in Toronto?s Hospital for Sick Children was worse than a nightmare. She checked in at four in the afternoon and was immediately given a series of tests. She didn?t get to her room until a quarter past eleven that evening. At midnight?well, let Lisa tell what happened. ?At midnight a nurse came in and said: ?I have to give you some blood.? I cried out: ?I can?t take blood because I?m one of Jehovah?s Witnesses! I hope you know that! I hope you know that!? ?Well, yes, I do,? she said, and immediately pulled out my IV and shoved in the blood. I was crying and becoming hysterical.?
At 17 years of age, Ernestine was diagnosed as suffering from leukemia. Upon being hospitalized, she refused to consent to the use of blood products to support the chemotherapy the doctors wanted to administer. Because of Ernestine?s refusal and her mother?s support of her choice of nonblood treatment, the hospital reported the matter to the welfare officials in Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A., who in turn sought a court order to use blood. A hearing was arranged, at which the trial court heard testimony from Ernestine, a medical doctor, a psychiatrist, and an attorney, as well as from other people involved.
All of these youths were victims of the insane and superstitious anti blood propaganda of the Watchtower Society. They had been subjected to that relentless propaganda since childhood without any chance of getting balanced and factual information. They are examples of how insane fundamentalist Christians can get and hold absolute power over their unfortunate sucjects and manipulate people to actually die for their insane superstition. The ultimate power, with that kind of power, they actually has become Gods.
