A Garden Grows: Quakerism in Nazi Germany
by Mary Mills
In 1998, Etta Albrecht Mekeel, the daughter of Hans Albrecht, the Clerk of the German Yearly Meeting 1927-1947, gave me copies of her father's discussions of the growth of Quakerism in Germany. Since they were in German, I considered the eventual possibility of my translating them and requested her permission to do so. She gave it and this book is the result.
