Through footage, archival recordings, interviews with notable contemporaries and family members, Joachim Prinz: I Shall Not Be Silent traces the life of a man who was an unwavering mission for justice, unconcerned with the popularity of his positions.

In Berlin in the 1930s, the civil rights of Jews were systematically stripped away. The outspoken rabbi Joachim Prinz refused to be silenced. In spite of increasing danger, he continued to preach of the value of Judaism. Expelled from Germany to the Unites States, Prinz became a leader of the civil rights movement, marching in the historic 1963 March of Washington with Martin Luther King.
