THE IRON NAZI FIST CAME DOWN fast and hard on Leopold Engleitner, but he would not bend to terror. Unbroken Will describes
the life and times of an ordinary man whose belief in God and in
nonviolence stood the fiery test of Nazi persecution. In three
concentration camps, Engleitner suffered unspeakable brutality but
remained firm in his faith. Unbroken Will transforms the life of this principled man into a powerful lesson of history.
