Dietrich Bonhoeffer was born on February 6, 1906, as the sixth child (a twin sister, Sabine, was born minutes later to become the seventh child) of a well-placed Berlin family.

In 1931 he attended an ecumenical conference in Cambridge, England, and was appointed a European youth secretary of the World Alliance for Promoting International Friendship through the Churches.
