Father Hermann Scheipers (RIP: 1913 - 2016): The Last Living Priest from Dachau

At 102 a legend hath passed before us.

Remember this name: Fr. Hermann Scheipers.  

May he be our spiritual father and pray for us during this time of growing persecution of Christians.  

Ordained priest in 1937.

Arrested by the Nazis in 1940.

Dachau concentration camp is where the Nazis sent priests.  

He was sent to Dachau in 1941.

He survived. 

May his memory be eternal.
