“A Rose in Winter” recounts the extraordinary life of Edith Stein. Born Jewish, she demonstrated uncompromising courage as an outspoken advocate for equity in the Woman’s Right Movement at the onset of National Socialism in Germany, and though her actions, as a Carmelite Nun, challenging the very foundation of the Holy See to stand up against the Holocaust: a path which would lead to her martyrdom in Auschwitz.

According to the UN announcement, this film will serve as an introductory conversation on “Lessons for the Future and Peace Building: How History Can Enlighten Current Practice to Confront Modern Peace Challenges”. One of the speakers on this topic will be Zana Marjanovic.
