  D. Bonhoeffer's monument
by magor65
 
 

Favorite thing: Just in front of St. Elizabeth's church there is this interesting monument dedicated to Dietrich Bonhoeffer. D. Bonhoeffer was a german theologian born in Breslau ( German name of Wroclaw). He was a true advocate of the Jews. In fact his attempts to help a group of Jews to escape to Switzerland caused his imprisonment in 1943. He was hanged in the concentration camp in Flossenburg in 1945.
