Jean-Marie (born Aaron) Lustiger, whose Jewish mother perished in the Holocaust, converted to Catholicism as a teen, became a priest, and rose to the position of Cardinal. He faces a moral dilemma when Carmelite Nuns begin building a convent on the grounds of Auschwitz. The Cardinal struggles with his dual allegiances and tries to retain both his Jewish and his Catholic values.

Discussion led by Howard Hubbard, Bishop Emeritus
