Growing up in Nazi Germany with a Father Who Said: 'Salvation Comes from the Jews'

11/4/2011 - 6:30 p.m.


On Friday night, November 4th, during our 6:30 p.m. worship we are looking forward to welcoming guest speaker Dr. Ferdinand Schlingensiepen. Born in Bonn, Germany in 1929, Schlingensiepen’s father, Dr. Hermann Schlingensiepen, was the Director of a seminary that would side with the Confessing Church and be forcibly shut down by the Gestapo. The Confessing Church was a major source of Christian opposition to Hitler and his anti-Semitism. Dr. Schlingensiepen will discuss his experience growing up under National Socialism and how it impacted his life and his commitments. Dr. Schlingensiepen is the author of the recently published Dietrich Bonhoeffer 1906-1945: Martyr, Thinker, Man of Resistance.
