First published in English in 1987 by Fortress Press, this new edition includes new photographs, design and a new translation. The book now has more than 200 photographs, including many portraits of Bonhoeffer's ancestors and family gatherings, some never before published. Also included are press photos of contemporary events, maps, postcards, newspaper accounts, and posters that set events in his family life against the tumultuous events in church, state, and the international scene.
For those who know Dietrich Bonhoeffer (February 6, 1906–April 9, 1945) through his writings or even films about him, this centenary edition will introduce Bonhoeffer the man and circle of family and friends who together with him faced fateful choices.
