Summary

Summary

Nazi Germany produced an unusual group of Christian martyrs - perhaps none so complex as the Lutheran theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Born into a large upper-middle-class, professional family that was not particularly devout or observant (his father was one of the leading psychiatrists in Germany), Dietrich early in life decided he wanted to be a Christian theologian. Yet his family background and connections insured that he wouldn't be one in the narrow mould of so many of his colleagues. Opportunities for travel gave him a broad horizon of possibilities, and he travelled to America, where he valued his experiences in Harlem and his friendships with African Americans. His great regret was that he missed an opportunity to travel to India to meet Gandhi.
