The plan fails and Bonhoeffer contemplates his life while awaiting his death. ABOUT THIS FILM: The German theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer was one of the first, and strongest, voices of resistance to Adolf Hitler. An acclaimed preacher, pacifist and author, Bonhoeffer came to the famed Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem on a teaching fellowship. When Bonhoeffer returned to Germany in 1932 he had a new awareness of racial prejudice and challenged Christian churches to stand with the Jews in their moment of need. Bonhoeffer eventually joined the unsuccessful plots to assassinate Hitler and was executed three weeks before the end of the war. "Though structured as the biography of the late German pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Martin Doblmeier's engrossing documentary also offers a well-researched history of his times." - New York Daily News
