We hear the story of Ernst Lohmeyer – who fought both the Nazis and the Soviets – and meet a woman who witnessed the Tiananmen Square Massacre.
The Scholar who gave his life fighting the Swastika and the Sickle
Ernst Lohmeyer was a German theologian who served active duty in both World War I and World War II and resisted the rise of Nazi fascism as a member of the Confessing Church. But just a few years later he found himself resisting Soviet occupation; he was soon imprisoned, where he spent the rest of his life. James Edwards shares the story of this man who spent his life between the Swastika and the Sickle.
Firsthand Account of Tiananment Square Massacre
Chai Ling was a key student leader in the 1989 Tiananmen Square movement. She is now the founder of All Girls Allowed, an organization dedicated to restoring life, value, and dignity to girls and mothers and revealing the injustice of China’s one-child policy. For her work she has been nominated twice for the Nobel Peace Prize. She joins us to talk about that day more than 30 years later.
