Monday, June 10th: Bonhoeffer, Agent of Grace (90 minutes)

What is a moral person to do in a time of savage immorality? That question tormented Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a Lutheran minister of great distinction who actively opposed Hitler and the Nazis. His convictions cost him his life. The Nazis hanged him on April 9, 1945, less than a month before the end of the war. Bonhoeffer’s last years, his participation in the German resistance and his moral struggle are dramatized in this film.

 

Monday, July 22nd: The Hiding Place: The Story of Corrie Ten Boom (146 minutes)

When Nazi forces invaded Holland in 1940 and began rounding up Jews, Corrie ten Boom, her sister Betsie, and their elderly father risked their lives to save as many as possible. A hidden room was secretly built in their home where the oppressed Jews took refuge until a Gestapo raid put an end to their operation.
