Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a Lutheran-German pastor, theologian, and poet. He was involved in the church and military resistance during the time of National Socialism. On April 9, 1945, a month before the end of the war, he was executed at the Flossenbürg Concentration Camp. His life, teachings, and opposition to National Socialism is a strong, Christian testimony of faith, which makes Dietrich Bonhoeffer to this day an example to follow with his commitment to human dignity and justice.
