15:19 - Added biography text to WWI U-boat commander Martin Niemöller
Added a biography information to one of the more famous and controversial U-boat commanders of WWI Martin Niemöller. He is much more famous for his work and life after the war though. After his WWI career he became, as a Protestant pastor, a Nazi supporter before turning against them and ended up barely surviving 8 years in concentration camps. He wrote the famous poem "First they came ..." about Nazi persecutions.
