German Family Persecuted for Homeschooling

Please pray for the Wunderlich family whose children have been taken away because they homeschool.

Mike Farris of HSLDA meets with the Wunderlich family in October, 2012.

The HSLDA article begins:

At 8:00 a.m. on Thursday, August 29, 2013, in what has been called a “brutal and vicious act,” a team of 20 social workers, police officers, and special agents stormed a homeschooling family’s residence near Darmstadt, Germany, forcibly removing all four of the family’s children (ages 7-14). The sole grounds for removal were that the parents, Dirk and Petra Wunderlich, continued to homeschool their children in defiance of a German ban on home education.

For more information, please visit the HSLDA site to read the article.  The sidebars include talking points and contact information if you are willing to contact the German authorities.  Writing in English would, I assume, be perfectly fine, since most educated Germans understand English.
