This page has been erected to provide information and documentation of officially sanctioned discrimination against religious minorities in today’s Germany. Abuses against parishioners of the Church of Scientology form the major focus. But other minority groups are also targeted.
The founder of Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard, wrote that the price of Freedom is "Constant alertness, constant willingness to fight back. There is no other price."
