A Paradox of Moral Courage: The Tragic Story of Helmuth Huebener This session explores the moral courage that caused the young German Latter-day Saint Helmuth Huebener to put copies of BBC broadcasts in Hamburg telephone booths and city lamp posts-acts for which the Nazis eventually executed him. Huebener’s story is full of paradoxes-many of them embedded with the LDS Church itself. In this session, I will demonstrate how these paradoxes function in Thomas S. Rogers’s powerful drama, Huebener, and how this young man’s courage continues to impact current Latter-day Saints. How might we learn to follow Huebener’s example of questioning assumptions and seeking truth in humility and righteousness?
