Jutta  Koslowski  (Editor) - From the Life of the Bonhoeffer Family


The Bonhoeffer family in a new light

There are still new aspects of Dietrich Bonhoeffer's life to be discovered, more than seventy years after his death, as can be read in the memoires of his youngest sister, Susanne Dreß: her biography covers their childhood during the German empire, World War I and up to the Nazi regime, followed by the period of post-war rebuilding, and it reflects the tremendous changes that took place in this period. Her style of writing is unique and vivid, and she paints a clear picture of the family Dietrich Bonhoeffer came from. Thus the familiar image is given many new and unknown facets. A document of major historical value that makes for gripping reading.

"Two things were important for me: absolute honesty without making a heroic epic of it." Susanne Dreß
