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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
In this deeply researched and cogently written book, the historian Brenda Gaydosh gives us a fuller picture than we have had before of this man of great courage and deep piety, a righteous gentile among the nations in Israel, the martyr Bernhard Lichtenberg. -- Pamela S. Nadell, American University, author of Women Who Would Be Rabbis: A History of Women's Ordination, 1889-1985
The English-speaking world has long been deprived of a biography of the courageous Catholic priest, Bernhard Lichtenberg. Now, with Gaydosh's work, anyone with an interest in the Holocaust and the role of leaders in the Catholic Church can read this well-written story of an outspoken critic of the Nazi's anti-Semitic policies. More people should know about the bravery of Lichtenberg and now they will. -- Beth A. Griech-Polelle, Pacific Lutheran 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. -- Gotthard Klein, Diocesan Archives Berlin
