Many of us don't realize that Jews were not the only religious group persecuted in the Auschwitz death camp during World War II. Such was the case for Saint Maximilian Kolbe, the Catholic priest who gave his life in the starvation bunker for a fellow prisoner. His moving story is brought to life by actor Leonardo Defilippis in this powerful one-man dramatic production. In this tour-de-force performance, Defilippis switches effortlessly from Maximilian to Nazi, alternating dramatically between good and evil. 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. Maximilian: Saint of Auschwitz
is completed by a breath-taking musical score. The drama of this saint's heroism and faith touches the heart in a mysterious and profound way, and his message is an inspiration for our age.
76 minutes. Suitable for ages 10 and up.
