Sabina Wurmbrand was imprisoned by the Communist regime in Romania during the country’s worst Stalinist period (1950-1953). During her sentence, she was sent to the dreaded subterranean Fort of Jilava. She also endured forced labour working on the Danube River – Black Sea Canal. Tens of thousands of prisoners died during the construction of this canal.
Sabina was the wife of Reverend Richard Wurmbrand (1909-2001), who was imprisoned for his Christian faith for 14 years. While in prison, he envisioned a ministry that would focus on the plight of the persecuted Church, raise a voice on their behalf, and provide encouragement and assistance to them. In the mid-1960s, he founded The Voice of the Martyrs.
