Editorial Reviews

In 1938, Hitler's army occupied Austria. All men were ordered to enlist in the military. Franz Jagerstatter, a farmer and father of four, went into military training but refused to fight in Hitler's army, knowing that he would face execution.

His neighbors, pastor and even the bishop tried to convince Franz to enlist for the sake of his family. But Franz felt his faith and conscience compelled him to follow the teachings of God and not the decrees of the Third Reich. He was imprisoned, then executed on August 9, 1943 at the age of 36.

In 2007, the Vatican declared Franz a true martyr, officially placing him in the process of sainthood. The deep faith and courage of this humble farmer is an inspiration to all, and leads many to say no to war and to work for peace.

Featuring Martin Sheen as the voice of Franz Jagerstatter.

He may have been Catholic, but this dvd is a wonderful introduction to Franz Jagerstatter for all Christians. The story of a a person willing to stand against the evils of Nazism, even as his church leaders acquiesced.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MAN FOR OUR TIMES January 22, 2014
Verified Purchase
He said that patriotism was one of those things that some times can separate man from our creator's path. He was a man of conscious that took his beliefs, profound and solid, to the place reserved for the saints of our church. He took a different path and that made all the difference.
