Millennium Chapel
Here is a special place to pray for prisoners of conscience, those who have been imprisoned because of their faith or political views. This is the most modern part of the cathedral with names engraved on the glass screen to commemorate loved ones. The sketch of Mary & Jesus was drawn on the back of a military map by a German army surgeon, under siege in Stalingrad in 1942. The words Light, Life and Love, in German, show that despite his suffering, he could recall the true meaning of Christmas. The original picture was sent to his wife on the last plane to leave the encircled city. The artist died in a prisoner of war camp in 1943. This copy was given to Coventry Cathedral by the President of Germany on the 50th anniversary of the destruction of the Old Cathedral.
