Kitty Werthmann was a guest on Glenn Beck's show 1-2 weeks ago. She told briefly of her life under Hitler while she was a teen growing up in Austria.
Kitty is coming all the way from South Dakota to speak to us and only a few other groups. We are indeed fortunate to have her right here in our own community -- we don't have to travel to L.A. or Orange County to hear her!
Kitty has a talent for telling her story to make you feel as if you were right there with her. She will tell you how Austrians voted for Hitler because he was doing wonderful things in Germany after the war. He would do the same for Austria, they were sure! They were jubilant!
Hitler began giving skis to kids and motorcycles to young men to win their favor. Everyone loved him! But soon they saw strings attached to the gifts, and changes taking place in their schools and churches. Joy changed to caution and concern as they saw their freedoms disappear, one by one. "Totalitarianism didn't come quickly. It took five years, from 1938 until 1943 to establish a total dictatorship in Austria. We finally realized we had been had. Had it happened overnight, my countrymen would have fought to the last breath. The whole concept sounds almost unbelievable that the state succeeded in little by little eroding our liberties."
Come hear all the details.
See if you can identify anything that sounds similar to what's happening in America.
OSHA perhaps? The EPA? Your child's school?
Bring your friends and neighbors!
We have a large, comfortable room to hear Kitty's story.
