Synopsis by Elizabeth Smith
This video provides an in-depth look at the life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a Christian who felt compelled to take part in the little-known efforts of the German resistance movement. Bonhoeffer worked with others to try and put a stop to Hitler's cruel regime. He was a highly respected Lutheran minister and author who could have easily saved his own life had he not felt a duty to help those Hitler was determined to destroy. Actor Ulrich Tukur stars as Bonhoeffer in this program that won the top honor at the February 2000 Monte Carlo TV Festival. Director Eric Till filmed in the Czech Republic, Berlin, and Canada.
