Storyline

Joachim Prinz: I Shall Not Be Silent is a film about the power of a voice for justice. In 1930's Berlin, Prinz was a young rabbi as the Hitler regime was rising to power. Civil rights of Jews were systematically being stripped away and Prinz restored the self-esteem of the German Jews. Although the Nazis monitored his sermons and despite repeated arrests, Prinz continued to preach, urging Jews to leave Germany. Expelled from Germany in 1937, Prinz arrived in the United States and was horrified to witness racism against African Americans. Prinz became a leader of the civil rights movement and spoke at the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom in 1963 which has its 50th anniversary this year. Written by Anonymous

Great Civil Rights documentary and much more.
3 December 2015 | by See all my reviews

I recently attended a viewing of this film at Duke University. I would highly recommend it. It captures a realism of the Civil Rights movement that was educational and a pleasure to watch. This is something you should seek out, a very important film. The raw footage from that time and the speeches by Joachim Prinz are rare and beautiful. I would watch this documentary again. Is it possible to purchase this somewhere? There is a great tie between Jewish oppression and black oppression. These difficult topics were handled with grace and historic fact. I hope this movie becomes more available to the public. I had no idea that Martin Luther King had Jewish friends before watching this movie.
