Leonard and Mary Friedrich and the small Quaker group in Bad Pyrmont, Germany helped Jews to escape before the war, and supported hundreds of persecuted people during the eleven years of Nazi rule. Their resistance to the Nazis eventually provoked the authorities to arrest Leonhard in May 1942. The Quaker meetinghouse was commandeered and Mary, who was English by birth, was subjected to innumerable Gestapo interrogations and house searches. Leonhard and Mary both survived the war and rebuilt Quaker work in Bad Pyrmont. The book provides a personal account of the development of Quakerism in Germany.
