-Washington Jewish Week

Why did the German Church embrace Hitler and the Nazi Party? 

Why did the German Church embrace Hitler and the Nazi Party?  And what was a good German, a deeply religious and pacifist man, to do about it?

 Bonhoeffer openly challenged his church to stand with the Jews...

Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a young German theologian who offered one of the first clear voices of resistance to Adolf Hitler.  Bonhoeffer openly challenged his church to stand with the Jews in their time of need, and eventually joined a plot to kill Hitler.

...this amazing story of moral courage. 

Extensive research in the U.S. and Europe brings to life this amazing story of moral courage.  Extraordinary archival footage is interwoven with interviews with friends, family, and students of Bonhoeffer, with historians and theologians, and with the words of Bonhoeffer himself, read by Klaus Maria Brandauer. ________________________
