Many thanks for these URls.  I looked at them all and I have
included some material from them on my "Pastor Niemoller" page at
http://serendipity.magnet.ch/cda/niemoll.html (the front door is at
http://serendipity.magnet.ch/ - then the "Censorship page).  
I have included the umlaut in his name on my web pages (I trust this 
is correct, and that the usual English "Niemoller" is an Anglo-American error).

Best wishes,

P.S.  Ein solches schoene Schloss an deiner Home-page!
