    Suggested Itinerary

    “We—Jehovah’s Witnesses and non-Witnesses—should not be allowed to forget the history of the prisoners with the purple triangle. This was a beam of light in a dark age.” (Dr. Detlef Garbe, director of the Neuengamme Memorial)

    The Bible prophecy (Daniel 11:30, 31) and historical evidences indicate that Nazi Germany was the king of the north. What led to the rise of Adolf Hitler? How did Hitler “act effectively”? How did he „give attention to those leaving the holy covenant“? What “arms” did the king of the north utilize, and against whom? How did the king of the north „profane the sanctuary“ and „remove the constant feature“?

    In 1933, Hitler launched a campaign to annihilate Jehovah’s Witnesses. Thousands of Witnesses were transported to concentration camps. The Witnesses were thus the only religious group given their own prisoner identification symbol in the concentration camps—the purple triangle.

    The Purple Triangle tour is instructive and faith-building tour that will help you to appreciate our rich spiritual heritage and discover the charm of the Central Europe. You will enjoy a colorful mixture of the classical music, fine art, and inspiring landscapes. We want to make your time in Germany and Austria the most informative and enjoyable experience it can be and provide an authentic educational experience tailored to the individual.
