Part 1 of 19
The life of a Pope an extraordinary and moving
journey through 50 years of history.
1930's Poland, 10 year old Karol Wojtyla has
dreams, many dreams. One by one they are shattered. First by the loss of
his beloved mother and brother. Then, by the outbreak of the war and the
death-fleeing human exodus which ensued. And finally, by the first signs
of the Jewish persecution.
These events will mark the start of Karol's long
journey from worker, to poet and teacher. A journey full of encounters
that eventually leads him to become a priest and finally, in 1978 to become the
man we all now know, a man who mas marked an era, a man who has made history as
Pope John Paul II.
