I Will Not Serve P/b

by Rice David | 05 July 2019
Category: World War II
Synopsis

Over 17,000 Roman Catholic priests were called up to serve in Hitler's armed forces during World War 2. One refused. This is the fascinating true story of Franz Reinisch who, in a remarkably brave and principled act of conscience, refused to swear allegiance to Adolf Hitler and was put to death by guillotine as a result. His refusal to serve was based on what he witnessed of the persecution of the Jewish people. The story begins with Reinisch's refusal to take the oath in 1942 and then traces his origins in Austria: his troublesome youth, his romantic involvements, his decision to become a priest and his maturing into a spiritual leader whose decision of conscience led to his harrowing ordeal and ultimate demise. Based on historical fact and painstakingly researched, I Will Not Serve is beautifully written in a vivid and evocative fictional format - an inspiring story from a dark era. Franz Reinisch has been in the process of beatification since 2013.
