Gennadiy German is one of six Saratov residents who served a court-ordered sentence for their faith in Jehovah God. On July 29, 2021, he left the colony and finally met his wife.
Gennadiy was born in 1969 in the village of Dzygovka (Ukraine). He was educated as a poster artist after his father, who is also an artist. He has three brothers and a sister. Since childhood, he has been fond of sports, fishing and outdoor activities.
In 1992, Gennadiy married Nadezhda, who works as an apparatus operator for chemical water purification. The couple love to travel and often invite friends to visit. They have an adult son who is involved in advertising.
In 2006, Gennadiy became a Christian. It was the love for the Bible that became the reason for the criminal prosecution.
In September 2019, the Leninskiy District Court of Saratov sentenced Gennadiy to 2 years in prison only because of his faith — the court considered peaceful meetings with fellow believers to be the organization of the activities of an extremist organization. This news hurt the emotional and mental state of Gennadiy's family. They are outraged that such law-abiding and peaceful people as Gennadiy are being persecuted for their faith in Russia.
