In the years leading up to World War I, Karl & Julie Bonhoeffer lived a wealthy,
- aristocrat’s life with servants & governesses to wait on their every need.
- But when the war broke out, their lives were changed forever as their eldest two sons were conscripted into the German army.
Because of the economic collapse and massive shortages after the war began,
- the Bonhoeffers were forced to send their 11-year old son, Dietrich, to scout for food each day out on the streets.
- Life was getting harder and harder. But when they heard about their son Walter getting killed on the battlefield… they were devastated.
