Description

Against the Wall is the fascinating and inspiring story of Johann Huber, one of Austria’s earliest LDS converts. Huber had already been a controversial political figure in the farming community of Rottenbach, Austria, but he went from the frying pan into the fire when he informed his neighbors of his LDS baptism in Munich, Germany, in 1900. For the next decate, he weathered relentless persecution from Catholic clerics, neighbors, the local public school, courts, and government officials. Despite attacks from determined opponents, Huber was extraordinarily loyal to his adoptive faith and played a leading role in the foundation and expansion of the LDS Church in Austria. His descendants number more than 430 and live in many lands.
