Director Statement

One of the little-known stories of heroism and courage to emerge from the Second World War is that of Zoltan Kubinyi, a committed Seventh-day Adventist Christian. In the dying days of World War Two, the order was given to exterminate the remaining Jews in Hungary. Kubinyi, an officer in the Nazi-allied Hungarian army defied those orders to single-handedly save over a hundred Jews from the gas-chambers. This is the story of Kubinyi’s humanity and courage, told so that we, in times of crisis, can think of his courage and be inspired to do our own part in helping our family, friends and neighbours.
