    This is the first I ever heard of any Anabaptist people who were ever anti-Jew or anti Israel. Most of us take the Bible literally and we stand with Israel.

      Thanks, Sharon, for backing me on this one…My aim isn’t to be critical of the people in the video or making the trip, I’m just trying to clarify that I think this is not the mainstream view within the rank-and-file Old Order Amish faith….

    Thank you, Kevin, for your research and article.

    Mennonite World Review has this article from the December 24, 2012 print issue:

    As noted in the article, none of the Mennonites in Germany refused conscription during WWII, and may have participated in rounding up Jews and others to be sent to concentration camps. Even if they did not directly participate, by being part of the German military they participated. That is what the reconciliation visit was all about.
