Richard Wurmbrand’s Tortured for Christ documentary

Richard Wurmbrand:

In the Bible, the words „Don’t be afraid” occur 366 times. Once for every day of the year. And because there is the extra day for the leap year, it is not 365 times, but 366 times. I knew that even in the hands of the secret police, I am in the hands of the almighty God and this gave quiet to my heart.

I was led to a prison which is 30 feet below the earth and for years I was kept there in solitary confinement. Don’t think that I speak about my sufferings. I speak to you about the suffering of my whole country and of the church which is behind the iron curtain, which has given in these years innumerable martyrs, heroes, and saints. I have been among the weak ones and the little ones in prison. I speak about these great heroes of faith… For years we were kept, everyone (of us) alone in a cell. Never did we see sun, moon, men, except for the interrogators who beat and tortured (us). Never have we had a book, never a bit of paper, And after many years when I had to write again, I did not remember how to write a capital D.

We lay on a few desks, we looked to the ceiling. That is all we had. Never could we hear in this prison even the slightest noise… and there was a silence which you could cut with a knife. Now, in this absolute solitude, we could experience if christianity is true or not.  (video source –

    I just finished reading The Pastor’s Wife. I was wondering if you can tell me if Mihia Wurmbrand aka as Michael Wurmbrand ever married and had any children? After doing dozens of searches, I found a reference to a wife but that’s as far as I got. Appreciate any and all information of Michael’s family. Thank you and I am praying for those being tortured for their love of Christ and especially for the USA that appears to be going down the same path as Romania’s days of communism. I know whom I believeth and pray that my love for Him continues to grow so that everything else becomes nothing in comparison.

      Hi Diane,
      It is always great to hear how the testimony of suffering and the imprisonment of our brother Richard Wurmbrand continually affects the lives of countless people.
      Michael Wurmbrand is married and has adult children, and I believe he still lives in the state of California, but I do not have any contact information.

    One website said that Michael was dead so he is still alive? Wow! Thank you for your reply. I just ordered a couple of more books by the Wurmbrand’s and have spent all afternoon today reading anything I can about their story. Thanks again for your reply.

      maybe the website confused the son with the father. I do have a PAGE with links to all of the Richard Wurmbrand material I have previously posted and although most of the posts are in Wurmbrand’s Romanian language, there are some in English, as well as some videos that you might enjoy. God bless you!

        Thank you Rodi. You be blessed as well. Our Father is a Great God and HE is DOing mighty things in the earth. I am so thankful that He desires fellowship with us.
