Brand new hardcover book! ; BYU Religious Studies Center has just released In Harm's Way: East German Latter-day Saints in World War II.
This volume contains compelling and riveting stories of 7,500 members of the LDS Church in East Germany. These saints found themselves in a precarious situation when World War II broke out in September 1939.
They were compelled to live under the tyranny of Nazi Germany and thus to participate in offensive and defensive military actions.
The story of how they lived-and died-under those conditions has never been told. This volume brings together the accounts of hundreds of Church members who survived the war, preserved in hundreds of personal interviews, journals, letters, and photographs.
Their stories of joy and suffering are presented in this book against the background of the rise and collapse of the Third Reich.
Readers will be amazed at the faith and dedication demonstrated by these Saints, young and old, military and civilian. ; 8 1/2" x 11"; 545 pages; 9780842527460
