The Ninth Day




www.kino.com/theninthday/

I just saw this film (The Ninth Day) last night. It was very moving and powerful. It is based on a few accounts of different Priests who were imprisoned in German concentration camps during WWII. Mostly it was based on one Priest's story Fr. Jean Bernard who's book www.amazon.com/Priestblock-25487-Memoir-Jean-Bernard/dp/0972598170/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1210440169&sr=8-1 I recently read. I highly recommend purchasing it. For your info netflix has it available for rent.

I bought it from Amazon.com. It was in only a few theaters in America back in 2004 I think. Well worth the 29$. It was made in Germany.

I just saw "The Red & the Black" - also an account of how the Catholic Church, Priests, layity, and others assisted Jewish people during WWII. Also moving!
