Elisabeth Sifton and Fritz Stern at Carnegie Council

On Wednesday, March 26, at 5:30 p.m., Elisabeth Sifton and Fritz Stern will discuss their book, No Ordinary Men: Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Hans von Dohnanyi, Resisters Against Hitler in Church and State at Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs, New York.

During the twelve years of the Third Reich, very few Germans took the risk of actively opposing Hitler’s tyranny and terror, and fewer still did so to protect the sanctity of law and faith. In No Ordinary Men, Elisabeth Sifton and Fritz Stern focus on two remarkable, courageous men who did, the pastor and theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer and his close friend and brother-in-law Hans von Dohnanyi.

Carnegie Council is located at Merrill House, 170 East 64th Street, New York, NY 10065. The event is $25 for non-members, and free of charge for students with a valid ID and for Carnegie New Leaders. This special offer is limited to a small number of seats—first come first served—and registration in advance is required. Registration is available on the Council’s website.
