Bonhoeffer with Confirmands from Berlin 1932, Picture: Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin
Dietrich Bonhoeffer was an active opponent of the National Socialist regime. To this day, he is regarded as the central figure of ecclesiastical resistance. The memory of the Protestant theologian, who was executed on the morning of April 9, 1945 in the detention yard, shaped the memory of the Flossenbürg concentration camp for decades.
In addition to the history of the concentration camp, the focus of the thematic tour of the historic site is on the life and work of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, as well as his opposition to the National Socialist dictatorship.
