Topics: Holocaust

Meet Bazyli and Anna Jocz, our siblings in Messiah

Bazyli worked for CMJ in Poland as a colporter, handing out books and other literature. In 1943, Bazyli was forced to hide in a woodshed while his wife Anna passed as a Gentile Polish woman. But early the next year somebody betrayed them. The Gestapo had come looking for them.

Bazyli and Anna Jocz: Jewish Christian Victims of the Holocaust is the first fruit of an on-going project to retrieve the names and stories of the Jewish Christians who suffered — just as other Jews — during World War II.

Bazyli & Anna Jocz book cover
Star of David

“O Sovereign Lord, holy and true, how long before you will judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” Then they were each given a white robe and told to rest a little longer. (Revelation 6:10-11)

Help us remember their names and stories

Kelvin Crombie, author of For the Love of Zion, is systematically surveying the fate of Jewish believers in Jesus (Hebrew Christians/Messianic Jews) who suffered during World War II. Thousands of such Jews died at the hands of Nazi Germany and their allies, but very little hard evidence, figures, and stories have ever been assembled about these Holocaust victims.

Kelvin is in the process of

  • collecting testimonies,
  • compiling names of victims, and
  • analyzing how Jewish Christians were rounded up and murdered across Europe.

This is a giant and difficult task. Please pray for Kelvin and his research. Pray especially that historic material on these believers (sometimes known as non-Aryan Christians) will come to light.

Consider partnering with CMJ in this important work.
