"Letter from a Birmingham Jail [King, Jr.]"

Published:

"Letter from a Birmingham Jail [King, Jr.]"
http://www.africa.upenn.edu/Articles_Gen/Letter_Birmingham.html

excerpt:
We should never forget that everything Adolf Hitler did in Germany was "legal" and everything the Hungarian freedom fighters did in Hungary was "illegal." It was "illegal" to aid and comfort a Jew in Hitler's Germany. Even so, I am sure that, had I lived in Germany at the time, I would have aided and comforted my Jewish brothers. If today I lived in a Communist country where certain principles dear to the Christian faith are suppressed, I would openly advocate disobeying that country's antireligious laws.
