Tortured for Christ - Be inspired by love and forgiveness that conquered Communist prisons. Pastor Richard Wurmbrand suffered 14 years of imprisonment and brutal torture, while his wife, Sabina, was treated as a slave in a labor camp. Their only “crimes” were their faith and witness for Jesus Christ. Through it all, they loved their enemies and sought to win their torturers for Christ. Filmed entirely on location in Romania, including in the very prison where Richard endured torture and solitary confinement, this is the cinematic retelling of one of the most powerfully inspiring and historically significant testimonies of all time. Based on the testimony of VOM founder Pastor Richard Wurmbrand as written in his international bestseller Tortured for Christ, this movie was produced By The Voice of the Martyrs to honor the 50th anniversary of the book’s 1967 release. Widescreen.
Richard and Sabina Wurmbrand - Before communism fell in Eastern Europe, Christians were often arrested and kept in prisons or labor camps where the Communists went to great lengths to break their faith. This is the story of a family whose faith endured. Born in Romania, Richard and Sabina Wurmbrand became Christians after they were married. They soon began sharing the Gospel, even though it was prohibited. In 1945, Richard stood up publicly and proclaimed Christ while speaking out against communism. This bold move, as well as his work in the underground church, led to the Wurmbrands’ imprisonment by the Communist government. Richard and Sabina endured unthinkable horror at the hands of the Communists, but their faith and witness was only strengthened, even through multiple imprisonments. After being ransomed out of Romania, the Wurmbrands dedicated themselves to helping the world understand the horrors that were occurring behind the iron curtain. They began a ministry now known as “The Voice of the Martyrs,” to bring awareness to the persecution of Christians. Their legacy lives on through the work they began and the many lives they touched. Hear their incredible story through Richard’s and Sabina’s own voices and interviews with their son Mihai. Rare film footage and photos are included, from the archives of The Voice of the Martyrs and the Wurmbrand family. Widescreen, in color and B&W.

When Richard’s choice lands him in a communist prison, his faith and witness are tested to the limits. See how this Torchlighter’s amazing story continues to impact the world today. Fullscreen.
