Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a German pastor and key founding member of the Confessing Church, a movement within German Protestantism during Nazi Germany, that arose in opposition to government-sponsored efforts to unify all Protestant churches into a single pro-Nazi Protestant Reich Church. Arrested in 1943 by the Gestapo, Bonhoeffer was executed by hanging.
