Blessed Franz Jägerstätter

Today marks the Feast of Blessed Franz who was executed in Austria in August 1943 for his refusal to serve in Hitler’s army. He was Beatified in Linz Diocese in 2007. Pax Christi has followed the story and witness of Franz for many years and has created a wide range of resources on his life, including an excellent workshop for use in school or with young people.

There are more resources here in the Diocese of Linz

Find time to read his life-story. If you are a teacher or work with young people try the workshop.
