Our Liberator: St. Joseph and the Priests of Dachau
In the spring of 1945, the Roman Catholic priest inmates of the Dachau Concentration Camp sensed that the Allied victory in the Second World War was imminent. They also believed, however, that the Nazis would never allow them to leave the camp alive. On April 14, they began a novena entrusting their safety to St. Joseph of Kalisz. Unbeknownst to them, on the same day, Heinrich Himmler signed an order for the execution of all Dachau prisoners. Miraculously, Dachau was liberated by Allied troops on April 29, only hours before Himmler’s order was to be carried out.
Our Liberator: St. Joseph and the Priests of Dachau tells this remarkable true story, and gives a powerful witness to the power of intercessory prayer. It will play in theaters nationwide as a Fathom Event, alongside with A Father’s Heart: The Miracles of St. Joseph Today.
