about

Bernhard Lichtenberg: Roman Catholic Priest and Martyr of the Nazi Regime is the definitive English biography of the martyred Nazi-era Berlin provost, Bernhard Lichtenberg. This work presents a broad overview of Bernhard Lichtenberg's life (1875-1943) in the context of history. It discusses the areas of his life that had the greatest impact on how he dealt with situations during the Second Empire, the Weimar Republic, and the Third Reich, and it gives a detailed account of his resistance to the Nazis and his imprisonment and death. Appendices present a wealth of primary sources on Lichtenberg's life, including a collection of his letters from prison which have not previously been made available in English.
Brenda Gaydosh is associate professor of history at West Chester University.

Based on comprehensive primary sources, Gaydosh's book constitutes the first scientific biography of Bernhard Lichtenberg in English. It is an important contribution to research on Catholic Resistance in Nazi Germany which cannot bypass this Martyr of Human Rights.
