Sabina’s story

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.

This documentary contains unique, never-shown-before footage of some of these Romanian Communist prisons. (Length 26:00)

  1. Their story is so inspiring!

    I hope that your organization gets more exposure.

    Most "modern" societies are unaware of the persecution that goes on everyday (today, in real-time). The popular international media ignores it, and offers the masses only tabloid fodder about movie stars.

    One thing that the modern church of the West has forgotten is how important Scripture memorization is for us to grow, and should we ever face similar circumstances... to sustain us.
