Unbroken Will - USA TOUR- DVD documentary



 
Documentary on Engleitners 2006 USA Tour

Then, already an old man, Engleitner, one of the worlds oldest concentration camp survivors, began an amazing new career recounting his own experiences to ensure the terror of that time is never forgotten. Sixty-one years after World War II ended and in his 101st year, he undertook a remarkable tour of lectures that took him clear across the United States.


At universities and Holocaust memorial sites in Washington, DC, New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles he emphasized the vital importance of tolerance and humanity to ensuring peace.

Description
 
This is the Witness brother that was featured in the May 1, 2005 Watchtower article Pages 23-28 titled Though Weak I Am Powerful. Leopold died April 21, 2013 peacefully at his home.
In his 100th year the Austrian Leopold Engleitner embarks on an exciting journey that takes him clear across the USA. As one of the world's oldest concentration camp survivors he captivates audiences in Washington, New York and Los Angeles with his unbroken will.

Leopold Engleitner, born 1905, refused to serve in the Nazi army because of his bible-trained conscience as one of Jehovah's Witnesses and his belief in freedom, decency and humanity. He was persecuted as a conscientious objector and tortured in three concentration camps.
Through his courageous advocacy of peace and justice this ordinary man is an outstanding example of adherence to one's conscience.
Engleitner provides impressive proof that age is no barrier to reaching remarkable goals. And on Malibu beach a long-held dream finally comes true ...
