Christian Homeschool, Abduction Case on to European Grand Chamber

A Christian family in Germany battling for basic individual and religious rights such as to homeschool their children, appealed a lower court's rubber-stamp of approval for the Gestapo-style raid of their home, and the temporary abduction of their four children, to the full 15-member Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights.

HSLDA News – On January 10, 2019, the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) handed down its long-awaited decision regarding the Wunderlichs, a German family persecuted by their government for homeschooling. The court ruled that German authorities did not violate the Wunderlichs’ rights when they seized their four children by force for testing and evaluation.
The children were returned after three weeks in custody when authorities determined the children were well-educated and not isolated. The family, represented by ADF International and Home School Legal Defense Association, are appealing the lower panel of seven judges to the court’s 15-judge Grand Chamber.
