Hitler Orders Pacifist Martin Niemöller Arrested for Opposition to Nazis

Martin Niemöller

German Protestant and pacifist Martin Niemöller is arrested on orders from Adolf Hitler. Niemöller will spend the next eight years in prison or concentration camps, including four years in solitary confinement.

Niemöller had originally been a supporter of Hitler and the Nazi Party, but he became an opponent shortly after the Nazis took power and even began organizing an opposition movement.

Martin Niemöller will be tried and found innocent for "underhand attacks against the State," but he is fined for "abuse of the pulpit." After leaving the court, he's arrested again by the Gestapo and kept in custody by them.
