Maximilian Kolbe – a real polish hero

Maximilian Kolbe (*1894) was a Polish catholic priest and a Franciscan monk. During the Nazi occupation of Poland he was residing in the friary at Niepokalanow, the “City of the Immaculata.” There he was offering a hiding place for the Polish and Jewish refugees.

In 1941 he was arrested by Gestapo for hiding Jewish people

But that’s not why he is a hero.

Only 5 months after his arrest a group of prisoners escaped from the camp.

The Deputy Commander of Auschwitz
ordered 10 men to be starved to death.

When one of the selected men Franciszek Gajowniczek cried: “My wife! My children!”, father Kolbe volunteered to go instead of him. The deputy commander was surprised but he approved the exchange.
