Bonhoeffer

Ever since I learned that I had an uncle (who I never knew) who died at Normandy liberating Europe from Nazi tyranny, I have had an interest in WWII, particulalry the Third Reich, Hilter, and the Holocaust. This post today from Justin Taylor is worth reading.
65 years ago today Dietrich Bonhoeffer was hanged to death—stripped naked and strangled by a thin wire at Flossenb├╝rg concentration camp. Three weeks later the Soviets would capture Berlin and Hitler would commit suicide. Three months later the Allies would assume control of Germany.
