Sister Courage - A Fearless Fight against the Nazi Regime

Schwester Courage - Anna Bertha Königsegg

This film sheds light on the fate of an extraordinary woman who has been overlooked by history: Anna Bertha Königsegg, visitator of the Sisters of Charity in Salzburg, who fought against the systematic murder by the Nazis of people with physical and mental handicaps under the so called T4 programme. She actively resisted the transportation of the protégés of her order and thus risked her own life; despite her courage, however, she was unable to save the majority from being killed.
