|In Harm’s Way: East German Latter-day Saints in World War II (HARDBACK)
By Roger P. Minert
Retail: $29.95--> $24.95 (Pre-Order Special)
This long awaited 545-page volume contains riveting stories of 7,600 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.
In Harm’s Way brings together the powerful 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. The
Religious Studies Center at BYU has printed a limited number of copies of the
book, so order early to ensure you get copies before they are all sold out.
Behind the Iron Curtain: Recollections of Latter-day Saints in East Germany
By Garold N. Davis and Norma S. Davis
Retail: $11.95--> $5.95 (50% OFF - BUNDLE Special)
In 1939 when Hitler's armies marched into Poland, the LDS missionaries
marched out of Germany and eventually out of continental Europe, leaving a
strong and thriving Church in eastern Germany.
Through personal interviews with East German Saints, this volume documents
the moving personal faith of those Saints who survived World War II and
rebuilt Zion during the communist years. Read the personal histories of the
East German Saints who saw their country destroyed by war and their church
isolated by the Iron Curtain.
Experience their joy at the dedication of the Freiberg Temple in 1985, the
return of missionaries in April 1989, and the fall of the Berlin Wall in November
1989. Behind the Iron Curtain brings to life a vital chapter of modern Church
history that cannot be missed.
