Nora Crest in Toronto: Growing up in Scientology means indoctrination from birth - 2015-06-25
Nora Crest gave a sharp, funny and at times moving account of what it is like to grow up inside Scientology. She was born in 1976, a few years after her mother had started in Scientology. Her mother was working with the Guardian's Office in Sacramento – the old intelligence unit.
Her father, while he wasn't officially with the GO, did help out with the Snow White Program, the vast operation to steal government documents relating to the movement. Years later, she learned that he had got a job in a government building in Sacramento, hiding out in the ladies' toilets until after closing, so he could open a window and let the burglars in.
