Bonhoeffer

Description:

Pastor, pacifist, Nazi resister

Why did the German Church embrace Hitler and the Nazi Party? And what was a good German, a deeply religious and pacifist man, to do about it?

Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a young German theologian who offered one of the first clear voices of resistance to Adolf Hitler. Bonhoeffer openly challenged his church to stand with the Jews in their time of need, and eventually joined a plot to kill Hitler.

Extensive research in the U.S. and Europe brings to life this amazing story of moral courage. Extraordinary archival footage is interwoven with interviews with friends, family, and students of Bonhoeffer, with historians and theologians, and with the words of Bonhoeffer himself, read by Klaus Maria Brandauer.

"A touching narrative on the nature of faith. Powerful and shocking." - New York Times

"A heroic odyssey that is illuminated with admirable charity." - Los Angeles Times

"It is right and fitting that such a life gets our attention." -Washington Post

"An inspiring portrait of one of the great moral heroes of the 20th century. Undeniably poignant and thought-provoking." - Minneapolis Star Tribune

"Powerful and timely." -Dallas Morning News

"The film is a must see for anyone who is haunted by the question of where the German conscience was during the Holocaust." -Washington Jewish Week

This wasn't the best documentary I've seen about a person's life, but I enjoyed it. At least I know more than I did before concerning Bonhoeffer's life.
