Book DescriptionNot all Germans acquiesced to the power and terror of Hitler and the Third Reich. Not all Protestants were, as Hitler once remarked, "insignificant little people, submissive as dogs, and they sweat with embarrassment when you talk to them." A few stood up because they believed their faith?and their very lives?demanded it. Gisela Dewees was the teenage daughter of Pastor Wilhelm Harnisch, an active member with those who opposed Hitler?s state church. This is the story, told by Gisela, as she matured into womanhood and struggled with her family to do what was right rather than what was safe. This is the story of a family who knew what it was in the 1930s and 1940s to be Out of Step in Germany.
