When Truth Was Treason: German Youth Against Hitler

What we have learned to the present in articles, books, plays, and lectures of what is now being called the Helmuth Hübener Group might be called the popular Hübener. When Truth Was Treason is the scholar’s Hübener. The story of the young LDS Helmuth Hübener’s resistance to Hitler is told by the last living member of the group, Karl-Heinz Schnibbe. It is a gripping story that takes 141 pages in the telling. The remainder of the 425 pages in the book are photos, documents, notes, and index—all of which provide a fascinating supplement to the story itself.

The book contains 102 pages of notes on the text and 32 pages of index. When Truth Was Treason will become the official story of the Helmuth Hübener Group and will remain so for some time to come.
