Fr. Josef Toufar
Witness of the Cross

With this clip "Wake Up Project" wants to present to you the figure of Fr. Josef Toufar. This young and generous priest was a victim of the wave of communism that struck the Czech Republic in 1949. The "Miracle of the Cross of Číhošt", was what led Fr. Josef to be kidnapped by the Communist Police force who subjected him to severe tortures. They manipulated the truth in order to wipe out the faith of the Czech people. Fr. Josef died due to the serious abuse received from the communist regime, but he left behind for the Catholic population, his example of faith and love for the truth.
