 With Bounds Hands: A Jesuit in Nazi Germany
Born in Mannheim, Germany, in 1907, Alfred Delp joined the Jesuits in 1926 and was deep into his training in the Society by the time the Nazis were flexing political muscle against all opposition, including Jesuits who preached against the evils of totalitarianism.
Delp was found guilty, but not of conspiracy in the attempt on Hitler's life, rather, of meeting with others who talked about a Germany free of Hitler, treasonous behavior in the judge's mind.
Alfred Delp, SJ, knew he was on trial for his life in this Berlin courtroom in January 1945, charged with knowing about a failed attempt to assassinate Hitler.

 Francis Phillips reviews Alfred Delp: Prison Writings
Alfred Delp SJ, 1907-45, was a German Jesuit hanged by the Nazis on 2 February 1945 at Berlin-Plotzensee prison.
Although Delp was friends with members of the Kreisau Circle, which included some of the plotters, the charges against him were flimsy and he had hopes of being exonerated.
Delp knew he was ‘desperately short of time’(and paper) and his writings often move one to the core; it is always salutary to share the vision of someone standing so bravely at the edge of eternity.

There was no evidence to incriminate Delp in the assassination plot, but he was hanged nonetheless, in part for opposition to the prevailing regime, in part because he was a Jesuit priest.

Near the end of World War II a German Jesuit, Father Alfred Delp, was imprisoned for envisioning a new social order for Germany.
I was struck as I read Merton’s essay by the timelessness of his observations about Father Delp’s vision, a vision which had been shaped and formed by his intense life of prayer.
Merton writes, “[Man] must be liberated from fixation upon his own subjective needs and compulsions, and recognize that he cannot fully become himself until he knows his need for the world and his duty in serving it.

When this organization was exposed in the summer of 1944, Delp was taken into custody and charged with treason.
