Maximilian Kolbe was a Polish friar who founded the Militia of the Immaculate and two monasteries, and who wrote and published periodicals and newspapers. Kolbe became a political prisoner in Auschwitz in 1941. He offered his life in place of another man condemned to death, and in so doing became a martyr to the truth -- the truth about religion, and about the twin evils of those despicable political systems, Nazism and Communism. Maximilian Kolbe: Saint Of Auschwitz is the story of a most remarkable man, a life that teaches us all about sanctity, perseverance, self-sacrifice, and Christian love. This is an heroic story of a humble man. --Midwest Book Review
