Richard Rudolph, Concentration Camp Survivor, Dies in Germany at 102

Richard Rudolph, one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, who survived five Nazi concentration camps and endured imprisonment under Communist rule, died on January 31, 2014. He was 102 years old.

After the Nazis rose to power in 1933, the work of Jehovah’s Witnesses was outlawed in much of Germany. As a result, a total of 11,300 Witnesses were imprisoned by the Nazis, 4,200 of them in concentration camps, including Mr. Rudolph.
