St Maximilian Kolbe

St Maximilian Kolbe
There was this priest in the second world war he was giving shelter to the refugees

St Maximilian Kolbe got arrested by The Nazis. When he was in prison he teached the other prisoners to pray and sing. Soon The Nazis were picking a prisoner to get executed, they picked a prisoner then the prisoner said ‘please don’t execute me, I have a family and I need to take care of them’. The Nazis refused but then Kolbe replied and said ‘ Execute me instead, I am old and I don’t have a family'. The Nazis agreed. They went to the execution room and killed him.

  1. Hi there Matthew, Thank you for sharing your story retelling the life and sacrifices of St. Maximilian Kolbe. He was a very brave man at a time when the world was a very troubled place. Well done.
