Biographical Note: Bernhard Citron, (b. 1905), Presbyterian pastor and educator, was born in Berlin, Germany in 1905. Raised in the Jewish faith, Citron did not convert to Presbyterianism until he was forced to flee Germany during the 1930s for writing anti-Nazi articles in a financial publication. In 1938, he enrolled in the New College in Edinburgh, Scotland, however he was imprisoned in 1940 due to his illegal alien status. He was released and able to resume his studies in 1941 and was licensed in 1943. In 1946, he earned his Ph.D., also from the New College, and was appointed the Warden of New College Settlement. From 1947-1952, Citron taught at New College; from 1953-1955, he was a visiting professor at Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary. In addition to his teaching, he authored several books. He served as a pastor at Harthill, the parish of Uphill, and Pleasance church, all in Scotland, as well as in Honeywood, Ontario, Canada.
