Regular price $ 5.00

In 1941, Father Maximilian Kolbe was arrested by the Nazis and placed in the Auschwitz concentration camp. When ten men were chosen to die one day, Kolbe volunteered to replace a young husband and father. It took two weeks for Kolbe to die of starvation and neglect. The man Kolbe replaced survived the war and attended the canonization in 1982.
