How many Jehovah's Witnesses died during Holocaust?

Only very rough estimates exist and I can find no number for the TOTAL number of witnesses the died. In Nazi Germany 270 witnesses were executed and 10,000 witnesses in Germany were imprisoned during the war period. see related links below. There were about 30,000 Jehovah's Witnesses in the region at the time that were persecuted by Hitler and the Nazi Party. How many of those died as a result of the Holocaust is unclear, but here is a website that you may already be aware of that is for the US Holocaust Museum: You may be able to contact the Holocaust Museum for more information. It would be impossible to put an exact figure on it but estimates are that about 10, 000 were sent to prison camps and 1,500 to 2000 died. Around 10,000 were imprisoned, but due to their desire to ensure that they survived together they were well known for looking after each other. So their death rate was about 2,500 - 5,000

What do Jehovah witnesses believe about Holocaust?

Some in the world deny that the holocaust even happened. Jehovah's Witnesses recognize that the holocaust happened, in fact, many of Jehovah's Witnesses were murdered at the hands of the Nazis in concentration camps. There is an entire section of the United States Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC dedicated to Jehovah's Witnesses. The website address for that is : Jehovah's Witnesses believe that the Nazi Holocaust and all the other genocides that have occurred are all prt of the composite sign that Jesus gave in Matthew chapter 24, Luke chapter 21, and Mark chapter 13, that indicate that we are living in the "last days" of this present system of things. Jehovah's Witnesses have been able to face, even death, because of the hope that we have that soon this present rulership will be done away with, and God's Kingdom with Jesus Christ as king will rule and even those who have died will be ressurrected to paradise on earth. See the article "Jehovah's Witnesses, Courageous in the Face of Nazi Peril": == As one of Jehovah's Witnesses and can say that the Holocaust definitely happened and it was an extreme test of fait to be taken away from their homes and put in concentration camps but many were able to endure and survive. Those who died will have the chance to be resurrected and live forever in a paradise earth because they died faithful to Jehovah. Another test of faith was when they were tempted to deny Jehovah and offered relief by doing so.
