In My Defence:

Neither Prisoner Nor Chains

Written by Jack Emery

‘In 1942 Franz Jagerstatter, an Austrian Catholic, was called up to serve in Hitler’s army. By publicly stating his refusal to fight for the Nazis he knew he faced certain execution. From his prison cell, he wrote to his family explaining his actions.’
