Becoming a Distant Memory

The oldest known (but not the last) Nazi concentration camp survivor died April 21 at age 107. After refusing to renounce his faith as a Jehovah’s Witness, Leopold Engleitner survived three concentration camps and forced labor between 1939 and 1945. He was released from Ravensbruck in 1943 after agreeing to work as a farm slave laborer. Later, after being ordcered to report for duty in the German army, he hid in the countryside until the war ended.
