The incredible true story of Jewish Romanians, Richard and Sabina Wurmbrand, and how they came to faith in Jesus Christ in 1936 after meeting a German carpenter who gave Richard a Bible. Set at the end of the tumultuous Nazi war in Romania, the story primarily follows a reluctant Sabina and how she was transformed from an ambitious, atheistic hedonist into one of the greatest Christian women of the 20th century. A powerful example of forgiveness and reconciliation as the gospel is lived out in such an amazing and sacrificial way through the Wurmbrand’s lives.

Sabina—The Nazi Years was produced by Voice of the Martyrs, the ministry founded by the Wurmbrand's after Richard was released from a communist gulag where he was imprisoned in Romania and tortured for 11 years because of his faith in Christ. This movie reminds us that forgiveness and redemption hold the key to transforming our lives and releasing the burdens of our past. When we open our hearts to who we really are in Jesus, we can receive God’s forgiveness and allow Him to write a new ending to our story.
