May 26, 1941 archives: Persecution

Sentenced to ten months in jail were two Presbyterian missionaries in Korea, Dr. De Witt S. Lowe and the Rev. E. Otto DeCamp. The charge: removing Shinto god shrines from the homes of their servants.

Sent to a German prison was the Most Rev. Joseph Philippe, Roman Catholic Bishop of Luxembourg. His flock learned the news from Cardinal Kinsley over the British radio.
