Suffering through the First World War, the Spanish Flu and then the rise and fall of Nazism, Engleitners story seemed to be lost to the pages of history until a chance meeting over half a century later with author Bernhard Rammerstorfer. Read his incredible story today!
This touching and impressive documentary recounts the experiences of a humble man who, because he was a bibelforscher (Jehovah's Witness) and objected to military service, had to endure the brutal machinery of the Hitler regime in 3 concentration camps
This is the true story of Leopold Engleitner, who at 107 years old was the world’s oldest known Nazi concentration camp survivor. As one of Jehovah's Witnesses (a bibelforscher), he refused to join the Hitler army and to salute "Heil Hitler." Like a "ladder" lowered into the "lions' den" he was given a way out by the Nazis, but he did not give up his beliefs.
