Hildegard Burjan - Charity Pioneer

Caritas Socialis - Hildegard Burjan

In a time of political dislocation and the beginning of National Socialism, of crisis and misery, she founded the religious congregation «Caritas Socialis» and dedicated herself to advocating the rights of women, fighting poverty and child labour. Born in Germany, she studied philosophy in Zurich before moving to Vienna with her Hungarian husband, where she became the leading female political figure of the post war period demolishing the traditions of that time. Using elaborately filmed scenes and numerous interviews, this documentary tells the moving life story of this fascinating woman, who has become a symbol of emancipation and altruism and is now on the verge of being beatified.
