Anabaptist martyrdom didn’t end in the 16th century. The Bearing Witness stories project collects stories
of people in the Anabaptist community of faith who willingly suffered, died or experienced significant
deprivation for their commitment to Christ.
A 15-metre galley ship tucked into the ruins of a castle vault restores to public memory a dramatic episode in Anabaptist history. It tells the story of 90 Hutterite men condemned to galley service – rowing the narrow warships – for refusing to recant their faith. A Taeufermuseum (Anabaptist museum) in Austria’s Falkenstein castle displays the historical context and faith emphases of the country’s Anabaptist movement.
