Sanctuary

Author(s):

Munich 1941, Emil, a young Catholic German architect, struggles with his conscience as he helps design the new crematorium at Dachau. He pleads his case for the Vatican's intervention to the powerful Archbishop Mueller. While sympathetic, he knows he must protect the Church from any hint of rebellion against the Third Reich. Instead, he offers Emil safe passage to America, but before he can leave, Emil's action gets the attention of the Gestapo’s Major Vogel. Now, desperate to escape, Emil and his pregnant Jewish lover/Resistance member Leah seek refuge within the Catholic Church. The ultimate battle between good and evil rests with the archbishop, who is hiding his own secret, and who must decide sanctuary or death.
