In 1938, German dictator Adolf Hitler created a law that made it illegal to homeschool. Seventy years later, that law was still on the German books and homeschooling was illegal. Like America’s public schools, Germany’s schools are very liberal anti-God establishments.
Uwe and Hannelore Romeike could not bear to have their children indoctrinated by the German school system and tried to homeschool their kids anyway.

The German government stepped in and at one point even took the children from their home. Once the children were returned to the family, the parents felt they had no choice but to seek asylum in the US because of the government persecution of their religious beliefs.
In 2008, the Romeike family fled to the US under threat of parental arrest in Germany and the threat of losing their children for good. They sought asylum here in the US and in 2010, Judge Lawrence Burman, an immigration judge granted the family asylum saying that if the family returned to Germany they would assuredly face persecution because of their religious beliefs.
