5.0 out of 5 stars Resisters against Hitler, 8 Jan. 2014
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: No Ordinary Men: Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Hans von Dohnanyi: Resisters Against Hitler in Church and State (New York Review Books Collections) (Hardcover)
I bought this book due to personal reasons: 1) for more information and 2) my pastor grandfather was a member of the Confessing Church led by Martin Niemöller and like him and many others was arrested and interrogated by the Gestapo in Darmstadt, Hessen. They did not talk much about this time and their experiences at home and I longed to know more. Therefore this book 'No Ordinary Men' gave me more insight and admiration for my grandfather and the risks he took. Elisabeth Sifton and Fritz Stern also mention the murderous program of liquidating disabled patients and incurable babies and children. I thank them especially for including this. My brother was born with meningitis and I remember well how scared my mother was of him being taken away by the authorities to be killed. She knew about the killings thanks to her Confessing Church pastor father. With the help of a homoeopathic doctor she saved her son, who grew up doing A-levels, getting married and has three children. For me this book is the best I have read on the subject and being relatively small I read it in one go. I feel it is a must read for all who have only a faint idea about those horrible events and what people had to endure under the Nazis.
