Persecution of Jehovah's Witnesses notes

Teaching notes on the content and usage of the 'Persecution of Jehovah's Witnesses' section of the resource, together with advice on the pedagogical challenges and conceptual issues it raises.

This photograph shows the home of the Kusserow family in the small German town of Bad Lippsringe. The accompanying card on Magdalena Kusserow relates the fate of the family. As the card explains, this house was a centre for Bible study classes whilst the family used the car to travel to nearby towns to distribute Witness literature.
