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. [from publisher's web site]
