80 years ago today - Jul 21, 1939

[J. Reuben Clark]
I raised the question as to whether or not we wished to continue to send missionaries to Germany, pointing out that in case of war it might be a question of getting our missionaries out of Germany and having them thrown into concentration camps, with all the horrors that that entails. President Grant expressed himself as not feeling happy about the situation. He felt we ought to discontinue sending missionaries to Germany until matters quieted down. This was decided upon.
