Not to speak is to speak.  Not to act is to act.  – Dietrich Bonhoeffer

“After Hitler rose to power Bonhoeffer left his post at Union Theological Seminary in New York, and his new fiancee, to return to Nazi Germany. He would soon be accused of joining the plot to assassinate the Führer, and spend two years in prison.  The German pastor was executed by the Nazi regime at Flossenbürg concentration camp on April 9, 1945, just two weeks before the United States liberated the camp.”  https://sojo.net/articles/11-bonhoeffer-quotes-remember-pastor-who-resisted-evil-unto-death
