TWO CROWNS is a docudrama about the life of Father Maximilian Kolbe, a monk who died in the Auschwitz concentration camp.

Theme

There are several references to the Holocaust, and these include references to prisoners being beaten, selected for death, and crying when they know their deaths are imminent. Some scenes show paintings of emaciated prisoners. There are also references to Father Kolbe volunteering to replace an Auschwitz inmate who was chosen to be starved to death, and to Father Kolbe being executed by lethal injection. However, these factual references are briefly descriptive, and there is no visual detail.

In one scene, there is brief sight of a man's ulcerated thumb. However, the man's condition is subsequently successfully treated.

There are also brief descriptions of a woman's death following the atomic bombing of Nagasaki. However, these descriptions are not detailed.
