palotionosenelPerú Richard Henkes (26 May 1900 - 22 February 1945) was a German Roman Catholic priest and professed member from the Pallottines. Henkes offered indirect assistance to the German Resistance during World War II and was one of the more vocal German priests to condemn Nazism. His first arrest in 1938 saw him released but his second arrest in 1943 saw him sent to the Dachau concentration camp. Henkes volunteered in December 1944 to work with patients in Block XVII who had contracted an acute disease. He became infected with the disease himself due to prolonged exposure to the ill. Henkes died around eight weeks or so later in the camp at 44 years old. The cause of beatification began in 2002 and Henkes was declared Blessed on 15 September 2019.
