About Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a German Lutheran pastor, theologian, and anti-Nazi dissident during the early 20th century.
Bonhoeffer first studied theology in Germany. Afterward, he went to study in America, and brought back African-American spirituals. When he returned to Germany, Bonhoeffer's career was greatly damaged by the Nazi Party's rise to power. Bonhoeffer was highly against the Nazis and their influence in the church. Because of this, Bonhoeffer and Martin Niemöller founded the Confessing Church. In 1941, Bonhoeffer became an agent for Abwher, which was the main anti-Hitler resistance. Due to his involvement with the Abwher, he was caught and executed in April,1945.
