Cards and Flyers

To participate in our Watchtower Victims Memorial Day on July 26, it’s encouraged to leave a flower and note or some other memorial such as a teddy bear at a local Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, or at a public park, beach, bus stop, in front of a library or museum, or any place that is comfortable for each participant.


In 2014, Barbara Kohout attached notes to hundreds of roses and handed them out in this town square in Germany. Her actions even got the attention of the local media!

Participants are also encouraged to create their own way of observing this day. Some have taken the opportunity to hand out flowers and flyers to strangers to alert them of the dangers of this religion, and others have created videos to post online as a message to their family or other victims. You might also release helium balloons if this is helpful and symbolic, being mindful of safety around power lines of course. One participant in 2014 placed small notes in plastic Easter eggs and left them around a local Kingdom Hall lawn! Another participant made up hundreds of small cards and attached them to roses, handing them out in a city square.

It’s also encouraged that each person take a picture or make a video of their memorial and share it on Facebook, if possible. This really demonstrates the love and support for victims worldwide. For those who wish to remain anonymous, you can send a private message to the Facebook page with the picture of your memorial and we will share it on the page for you, although this is completely voluntary. Everyone should participate in a way that is healthy and safe for them.

    I have been reading extensively about this abusive cult called the Jehovah’s Witnesses and I have decided to participate in the Watchtower Victims Memorial Day, which occurs on July 26, this year. I will not be in town for this year’s event but I will be doing this early at every Kingdom Hall in Escondido. If anyone wants to join me, I will be happy for the help.

    This cult is evil and dangerous. They may not be outwardly violent but behind closed doors they are anything but benign.

    Since I have started to learn the facts about this religion, I can feel more and more the heartbreaking deepness of it. We would like to translate (and recreate) these cards and flyer to another language (hungarian) to further advertise the memorial day here. May it be possible for us to get these cards’ pictures without the english texts? Thank You for Your help in advance!

    I just became aware of this via The Vast Apostate Hour on YouTube. I have posted a link to this website on a new blog I started. I am an ex-JW [fader] who has been inspired to add my voice to the growing number of ex JWs who want to share our stories and hopefully help others to leave this dangerous religion. Thank you.

      Sorry for the late response. If you would like to translate any of the information that would be very useful. Thank you, and again, apologies for missing this comment … so much to do with activism against the Watchtower, things get overlooked! So sorry.

    Born and raised a witness. I have lost my family
    My sister is dead to me. And my mother constantly reminds that I will be dying at Armageddon.
    I excited to celebrate this day.
