 Our Description


In 1941, Father Maximilian Kolbe was arrested by the Gestapo for his tireless work against the Nazi forces, and sent to the infamous death camp of Auschwitz. There he was used for slave labor, frequently beaten and subjected to humiliations, and in the end offered to take the place of a married man condemned to death by starvation. In this he fulfilled the words of Christ: "Greater love than this has no man, that he gives up his life for his friend." Forty one years after that heroic act, Maximilian was canonized by Pope John Paul II, who calls him "the saint for our difficult century."

The gripping story of the saint of Auschwitz is brought to life by actor Leonardo Defilippis, who has become well-known for his dramas on the Gospels and the lives of the saints. As the exciting plot unfolds, one is drawn not only into the compelling events of this courageous life, but into Kolbe's message of trust as well. Beautifully directed for the screen, Maximilian: Saint of Auschwitz is completed by a breath-taking musical score. The drama of this saint's heroism and faith touches the heart of the viewer in a mysterious and profound way, and his message is an inspiration for our age.

In color.
