(1911-1945)

Ordained a priest just a month before the outbreak of World War II, Father Engelmar was arrested by the Gestapo for preaching sermons defending Jewish people. While at the Dachau concentration camp, he served other prisoners and volunteered to care for prisoners who had typhoid. In prison he wrote to his sister: “Love doubles our strength, makes us inventive, makes us feel content and inwardly free. If people would only realize what God has in store for those who love him!”
