Sabina: Tortured for Christ, the Nazi Years is the story of how God's love transformed an ambitious, atheistic hedonist into one of the greatest Christian women of the 20th century. The film opens with Sabina Wurmbrand risking her life to show Christ's love to a trio of Nazi soldiers. Why? Why would a Jewish Christian risk her life to help her enemies - members of the army that killed her entire family?
The movie releases via video on demand, March 4-6. Free registration to watch the award-winning film or host a church screening starts at SabinaMovie.com.
Set during World War II, the film takes viewers on a journey to discover why Sabina, a Jewish Christian, would risk her life to offer kindness to German soldiers-enemies who killed her family. Sabina conveys the realities of religious persecution and the cost of following Christ when faith is forbidden.
Winner of Best Feature at the Christian Worldview Filmmakers Guild and Festival, Sabina was filmed on-site in Romania and produced by a Romanian crew.
Sabina is the prequel to The Voice of the Martyrs' Tortured for Christ film which focuses on how Richard endured 14 years of torture in prison while never ceasing to shine the light of Christ even in the darkest of places. Upon his release from prison, Richard and Sabina Wurmbrand founded The Voice of the Martyrs.
"Richard and Sabina were exemplary biblical disciples. Their story pushes each of us to rethink our concept of forgiveness and what it looks like to love our enemies as Jesus instructed," said VOM's spokesperson Todd Nettleton. "Sabina's life is ultimately a testament of how God's love can transcend pain and struggle-and even transform the lives of those around us. This story is truly inspiring. And now, families and even whole churches can watch the film for free."
Churches are invited to host a Sabina movie screening. Upon registration at SabinaMovie.com, churches will get a host kit that includes the movie, a promotional kit and a free gift for attendees of the screening.
