Deitrich Bonhoeffer

Above is quote from the great, profound German Lutheran pastor and courageous German resister, Dietrich Bonhoeffer.  Apart from his renowned theological writings, Bonhoeffer became known for his staunch resistance to the Nazi dictatorship.  He was arrested in April 1943 by the German Gestpo and executed by hanging in April 1945 at age 39 while imprisoned at a Nazi concentration camp, just 23 days before the German surrender.
