The Man Who Said No: The Story of Conscientious Objector Franz Jägerstätter
Manage episode 280236082 series 2818416
It's hard to be a pacifist in today's world, but it was deadly to be one under the Third Reich. On this episode of the Reel Reich, we will be telling the story of Franz Jägerstätter, an incredibly brave man who chose to make the ultimate sacrifice rather than compromise his beliefs.
His life and martyrdom inspired the film A Hidden Life by Terrence Malick, which we also recommend. Join us as we recount the truth behind the saint and discuss the issues around the Catholic Church and the Nazis.
