Susan you observe that through this book "people" in essence are able to appreciate the faith and courage of Jehovah's Witnesses during that time of distress. But Susan how many Jehovah's Witnesses are aware that they "are denied even forming their own views" or appreciating the faith and courage of Jehovah's Witnesses during their time of distress when they Dissent from (Organizational Policy enforced much like Nazi Germany by it's governing body against any Jehovah's Witnesses whom question Watchtower teaching whether scriptural or not including the governing body teaching) by not being allowed to even read their testimony of their faith and courage by the Watchtowers policy of Shunning such ones to prevent Jehovah's Witnesses reading their testimony as a form of CENSORSIHP REMOVING FREEDOM OF THOUGHT AND SPEECH.
If you really mean what you say you and other Jehovah's Witnesses would not deny yourself and your former brothers their right to expose similar Persecutions and Resistance from within the Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses for the purpose to "beat their former brothers and accuse those brothers of beating them falsely". A principle is everyone deserves the right to reply and defend accusations against themselves and be heard is fundamental to law, social justice to remove all "Persecution and Resistance".
If you give people even your former brothers "the right to explain themselves" like this book demonstrates a historic example of "Persecution and Resistance" existed as policy, you would "not follow man's organization policy, like Nazi Germany" and will purchase and read a former member of the Governing Bodies documented book entitled Crisis of Conscience complete with Watchtower reference letter heads and correspondence to his questions and dealings as authentic factual references of facts.
Crisis of Conscience is written with heart felt love for Jehovah's Witnesses.
Another book which parallels the Nazi Germany experience written by a former Jehovah's Witnesses which "gives balance to this time period", and what may have contributed to the Persecution and Resistance indirectly in Nazi Germany is the book entitled 30 Years a Watchtower Slave: The Confessions of a Converted Jehovah's Witness
Susan do "You Love the TRUTH" so much that you will purchase these books and actually read them and "Learn the Truth" about the internal workings denied all Jehovah's Witnesses that have lead to "Persecution and Resistance" and false marking of your brothers whom Jesus may be referring to as "strangers". Compare Mt 25:35 and 43 with verses 38-40 and 44-46!!!
Will other Jehovah's Witnesses like yourself be as fair minded to read quoted books giving a balanced appraisal of Jehovah's Witnesses Persecution and Resistance, appreciation for silenced faith, distress and endurance? Pr 17:17

Chris, we get it. You're disfellowshipped. Get over it. Move on. Find something or someone else to harass, as your comments regarding the Witnesses are getting tedious.

Chris, I am disfellowshipped too. Nobody's perfect. However, I am reading this book and feel it regards the persecution they have had to suffer as Jehovah's Witnesses whether persons agree with them or not. They were the only ones to suffer due to what they refused to do. All they had to do was sign-off on their beliefs and the Reich would've given them freedom. Their decision to remain faithful, refusing to heil Hitler, was admirable..any way you slice it. They deserve a place in history books. I'm glad to see they're acknowledged.
