A Lutheran minister with a small parish in a Berlin suburb who was also a prominent peace activist and president of the World Council of Churches, Niemoller became known as a leading opponent of Hitler, and was subsequently arrested. He wrote these poignant letters during his nine-month imprisonment by the Gestapo at Moabit Prison, where he was held before transfer to concentration camps for the duration of the war. His letters, addressed mostly to his wife, Else, deal with his concern for family and parish, his view (sometimes critical) of colleagues in the church struggle against Hitler, and his preparation for his trial. This collection nicely supplements Bonhoeffer's Letters and Papers from Prison. Richard S. Watts, San Bernardino Cty. Lib., Cal.
