When you hear the cries of the helpless, will you stop to lend aid, or will you just sing a little louder to drown them out? That is the question confronting viewers of the powerful new short film “Sing a Little Louder.”
The movie is based on the true story of an elderly man who witnessed the horrors of the Jewish Holocaust firsthand as a young boy.
Not only did he see and hear the desperation of Jews as they were carted to a Nazi concentration camp, but he witnessed the stunning indifference of the Christians in his church – an indifference that would haunt him for the rest of his life.
While the Holocaust of the 1940s is long gone, “Sing a Little Louder” challenges Christians to raise their voices for victims of a modern-day holocaust – namely, the slaughter of 42 million babies in the womb every year around the world.
According to a KingdomWorks Studios statement on the project: “During WWII, Hitler convinced Germany through propaganda that Jewish life had no value and that Jews were subhuman. In Mein Kampf Hitler wrote, ‘The Jew was always only a parasite in the body of other peoples.’ Today, advocates for abortion use a similar argument, claiming that an unborn child is not yet human, which they often label as a fetus, a parasite to the mother. The term ‘fetus’ is used by those who favor abortion to dehumanize the child. But that term is Latin for unborn child. Words can give life. Words can kill.”
KingdomWorks Studios is encouraging churches to screen the movie for their congregations as a launching point for a discussion on abortion. The movie is available to download at KingdomWorks.com.
DVD copies and movie screening packages are also available for purchase at SingLouderMovie.com.
WND previously reported on a prior version of the movie that focused on the persecution of Christians in the Middle East.
Director Jeremy Wiles said the movie has already had a major impact.
“Churches all across the nation have been showing the film during their Sunday services and it’s because the film has a timely and important message,” he said in a statement. “The church just can’t continue to sing louder.”
He suggested indifference to the slaughter of babies in the womb is akin to the slaughter of Jews during World War II.
“Are we prepared to revisit these tragic mistakes of our past?” the director asked. “We have to raise our voice for those that have no voice and people can join the cause by sharing the film with their friends or showing it in their church.”
The title comes from the man’s experience as a child in Nazi Germany. Attending church one morning, a train loaded with Jews stopped on a nearby rail line and congregants could hear the tortured cries from within.
But the congregants’ response was not to help but to “sing louder” to drown out the cries.
An amazing story of perseverance and unwavering faith in God – straight from the mouth of a woman who survived the Holocaust. Order your copy of “Trapped in Hitler’s Hell” today from the WND Superstore!
