Young John Paul II - Witness to Evil

Drama-documentary telling the story of five years which transformed the life of Karol Wojtyla and set him on the path to the Vatican.

The man who would become John Paul II was 19 when the Germans invaded Poland in September 1939. He had no intention of joining the church, but the devastating experience of Nazi occupation led him first to join the underground resistance and then to risk his life studying in secret to become a priest.

Interviews with key survivors from the period who knew him well, and the Pope's own writings, are combined in a powerful exploration of the young John Paul II's coming of age, including his brushes with death and the horrors he witnessed that helped to shape his thinking.

Thanks for this little blog of yours zoolander ;)

However, ALL popes are nazis! That's not to say they all served in nazi Germany but more that they are in league with the ideology behind it. Look into the REAL history of the catholic church at it's roots and instrumental names like Constantine. Only a real education in history that ISN'T rewritten by the self-appointed controllers & their minions can tell you the TRUTH!
