German Protestants pay tribute to Bonhoeffer
Bielefeld, Germany (ENI). German Protestants have remembered Lutheran theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer who was executed 60 years ago for his role in the plot to kill the Nazi dictator, Adolf Hitler. "Until the last moment he was not broken by what the Nazi power did to him, but kept his faith, his love and his hope," said Bavarian Lutheran Bishop Johannes Friedrich at the Flossenbuerg concentration camp in Bavaria, where Bonhoeffer, aged 39, was executed on 9 April 1945.
