Paul Schneider: Witness of Buchenwald
Paul Schneider (1897-1939) was a German Reformed pastor, father of six, and part of the Bekennende Kirche during World War II. Schneider's unequivocal opposition to the quickly ascending Nazi regime led to his imprisonment, torture and eventual execution at the hands of the Gestapo on July 18, 1939. Until now, Pastor Schneider's story has remained less accessible to English-speaking audiences. This authoritative biography of Paul Schneider by Rudolf Wentorf appears here for the first time in an unabridged English translation by Daniel Bloesch.
