2001 0-7734-7569-9 Karl Anton, a patriotic German who had participated in World War I (as a young minister, he spoke to the frontline troops, carried relief packages to the soldiers on behalf of the German Red Cross, and gave inspirational sermons to the civilians at home), discerned the evil of the National Socialist regime of the Third Reich and turned decisively away from it at great personal cost. His life reflects a strong moral position under adverse conditions (the discarding of his career and enforced isolation) and shows a man whose personal life, scholarship, preaching, and personal ministry reflect a deep commitment to a different set of values. The most significant gift Anton made to succeeding generations is contained in the work he did in organizing and protecting the famous Franz Hauser Bach collection, and in his final definitive article on the significance of that collection. With photographs.
