Januar 1933: Adolf Hitler wird deutscher Reichskanzler. Noch ahnt niemand, dass sein Regime Deutschland zerstören wird. Doch schon zwei Tage später warnt der junge Pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer im Rundfunk vor dem ´´Ver-Führer´´. Nach langem inneren Ringen entscheidet er sich schließlich, als Doppelagent gegen Hitler zu arbeiten. Das kostet ihn 1945 im KZ Flossenbürg das Leben. Metaxas erzählt Bonhoeffers Geschichte und lässt ihn in zum Teil wenig bekannten Briefen zu Wort kommen. Sein entschiedener Glaube an Jesus Christus gab ihm die Kraft für sein mutiges Handeln. 1.

In September, 1939, George Lucius Salton´s boyhood in Tyczyn, Poland, was shattered by escalating violence and terror under German occupation. His father, a lawyer, was forbidden to work, but 11-year-old George dug potatoes, split wood, and resourcefully helped his family. They suffered hunger and deprivation, a forced march to the Rzeszow ghetto, then eternal separation when 14-year-old George and his brother were left behind to labor in work camps while their parents were deported in boxcars to die in Belzec. For the next three years, George slaved and barely survived in 10 concentration camps, including Rzeszow, Plaszow, Flossenburg, Colmar, Sachsenhausen, Braunschweig, Ravensbrck, and Wobbelin. Cattle cars filled with skeletal men emptied into a train yard in Colmar, France. George and the other prisoners marched under the whips and fists of SS guards. But here, unlike the taunts and rocks from villagers in Poland and Germany, there was applause. ´´I could clearly hear the people calling: ´Shame! Shame!´... Suddenly, I realized that the people of Colmar were applauding us! They were condemning the inhumanity of the Germans!´´ Of the 500 prisoners of the Nazis who marched through the streets of Colmar in the spring of 1944, just 50 were alive one year later when the U.S. Army 82nd Airborne Division liberated the Wobbelin concentration camp on the afternoon of May 2, 1945. ´´I felt something stir deep within my soul. It was my true self, the one who had stayed deep within and had not forgotten how to love and how to cry, the one who had chosen life and was still standing when the last roll call ended.´´ 1.

From the New York Times bestselling author of Amazing Grace, this is a groundbreaking biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, one of the greatest heroes of the twentieth century, the man who stood up to Hitler. A definitive, deeply moving narrative, Bonhoeffer is a story of moral courage in the face of the monstrous evil that was Nazism. After discovering the fire of true faith in a Harlem church, Bonhoeffer returned to Germany and became one of the first to speak out against Hitler. As a double agent, he joined the plot to assassinate the Führer and was hanged in Flossenbürg concentration camp at age thirty-nine. Since his death, Bonhoeffer has grown to be one of the most fascinating, complex figures of the twentieth century. Bonhoeffer presents a profoundly orthodox Christian theologian whose faith led him to boldly confront the greatest evil of the twentieth century and uncovers never-before-revealed facts, including the story of his passionate romance. 1.
