Dietrich Bonhoeffer is one of the heroes of World
War 2. Not only did he preach God’s word fearlessly, he spoke and actively
resisted the evil of the Nazi regime. Discovered to be one of the people behind
the plot to assassinate Hitler he was arrested and eventually
Today he is remembered for his writings, including
his letters from prison and commentaries.
Not long before his death he was engaged to be married, and this unfulfilled marriage is one of the bittersweet notes to his story.
