    Oral history interview with Alphonse Lauber

    Overview

    Interview Summary
    Alphonse Lauber, born in 1900 near Mulhouse, France, discusses his parents Emile and Anna-Marie, becoming a Jehovah’s Witness in 1923; going to meetings; the banning of Bible classes by the French Government even before Hitler’s invasion of France; being fired from a job in a factory because he refused to sign pro-German documents; his subsequent difficulties finding a job because the factories were on a war footing and their production ran counter to Jehovah’s Witnesses beliefs; being detained in the summer of 1943; being imprisoned in Mulhouse for 10 days and then transported by train to Schirmeck concentration camp; being sent later towards the end of the war to Gaggenau; the mistreatment of Jehovah's Witnesses in the camps, the determined resistance to the Nazi ideology by the Jehovah's Witnesses and the presence of other political groups in the camps; getting married after the war; not having any children; and continuing his Bible education.
