While a group including Canaris and Oster were being taken to Flossenburg concentration camp, Bonhoeffer found himself in an eight-seat prison van with eleven other prisoners, on the way to Buchenwald. when he protested against being handcuffed again, his friend Josef Muller, who had plenty of experience with torture, consoled him, “Dietrich, don’t take it so hard. We’re doing this for our Christian convictions.”
