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”). This documentary tells the story of the Stalingrad Madonna and how it continues to serve as a motivation for reconciliation between nations.
