[Translate to English:] Verboten und verfolgt. Jehovas Zeugen im KZ Ravensbrück und in Haftanstalten der DDR

[Translate to English:] Die Ausstellung widmet sich Jehovas Zeugen, die im NS-Staat unter anderem im Konzentrationslager Ravensbrück inhaftiert und später in der DDR erneut verfolgt waren. Zeuginnen und Zeugen Jehovas hielten sich an die Worte des Propheten Daniel (Daniel 3,17f.) und flüchteten nicht aus der Haft. Sie betrachteten diese als eine Prüfung nach Jehovas Willen und wurden deshalb von der SS in SS- und Privathaushalten und auf landwirtschaftlichen Gütern ohne Bewachung eingesetzt.
