"What is a moral person to do in a time of savage immorality?
That question tormented Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a German clergyman of great distinction who actively opposed Hitler and the Nazis.
His convictions cost him his life.
The Nazis hanged him on April 9, 1945, less than a month before the end of the war."

Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a Lutheran pastor who realized that Hitler was not good for Germany and spoke out. His church and seminary were closed and had to meet secretly and he tried to tell clergy and officials in other countries what was happening in Germany so that they could help to defeat Hitler and the Nazis. Finally, he was one of over 100 involved with the Valkyrie Plot to assassinate Hitler and was hung April 9, 1945, a month before the end of the war.

Book description
Dietrich Bonhoeffer (Ulrich Tukur) pays the ultimate price for speaking out against the Nazi party in this dramatization of the German Lutheran minister's life. The clergyman actively opposes Hitler's regime, heroically condemning its atrocities. On many occasions, he has the opportunity to keep his peace and save his own life, but he stands by his moral convictions and is eventually hanged by the Nazis one month before the end of the war.
A true story of love, courage and sacrifice this  video version of the winner of the best film at Monte Carlo television festival, 2000, depicts the last years of Bonhoeffer's participation in the German resistance. 90 minutes.
