Inside Bonhoeffer's prison

Documentary filmmaker Martin Doblmeier (left) and Jorg Plica take their camera inside Tegel Prison, outside Berlin, to show the military interrogation facility where Dietrich Bonhoeffer was held in 1944. He was arrested, and a year later hung, for taking part in a plot against Adolf Hitler. Doblmeier’s documentary about the German theologian, Bonhoeffer, will air on PBS stations Feb. 6, 10 p.m. EST, in observance of the 100th anniversary of his birth (www.bonhoeffer.com).
