Inhaltsangabe: Through their own words and their stories, Ultimate Price highlights the witness of seven men and women who felt compelled by their Christian faith to resist the idolatrous Nazi regime. Some of these seven martyrs are well known, others less so. They include Lutheran theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer, imprisoned and executed for his part in a plot to overthrow Hitler; Jesuit Alfred Delp, executed for his role in the anti-Nazi Kreisau Circle; Franz Jaegerstaetter, an Austrian peasant who refused to take a military oath; Sophie Scholl, a young university student and part of the doomed White Rose conspiracy; hymn writer and novelist Jochen Klepper; Berlin's Cathedral provost Bernhard Lichtenberg; and recently beatified Jesuit preacher Rupert Mayer.
