In the harsh winter of 1942, Russian troops fight to hold off the advancing German Army at Stalingrad. In his frozen foxhole, German staff physician and Protestant pastor, Kurt Reuber, creates a simple charcoal drawing of the Virgin Mary and the Christ child. At the bottom of the drawing he writes an inscription, “Licht, Leben, Liebe” (“Light, Life, Love”). After the German loss, Reuber became a prisoner of war and died in a Russian prison camp in 1944. However, his drawing, which has become known as the Stalingrad Madonna, was flown out on the last German transport plane to leave the Russian front. After the war, copies of the drawing were hung in Volgograd (formerly Stalingrad), Berlin, and Coventry, England. It has become a potent symbol of peace and forgiveness between nations. This documentary tells the story of the Stalingrad Madonna and how it continues to serve as a motivation for reconciliation between nations.
