Another Interesting Excommunication

Here is another interesting excommunication:

Helmuth Hübener (1925-1942) was from an LDS family living in Hamburg, Germany. Despite warnings from the LDS President Heber Grant to keep a low political profile during the war the young Hübener listened to BBC and distributed anti-fascist pamphlets.

Helmuth Hübener was arrested on February 5, 1942. Ten days later he was excommunicated from The LDS Church. Hübener was executed in August, 1942.
