As the world grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic, let’s remember Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a German clergyman and son of a physician. He lived in Germany during the Nazi era, and tried to save lives by following his conscience.

That meant opposing fascism,the Nazis, Hitler, and trying to save Jewish people from extermination.

For that, he was executed and is considered to be a martyr for his faith.
