Franciscan friar and bearing his livelihood World War two took place and
in February 1941 he was captured by the German to stop oh and they sent to
Auschwitz which was one of the worst the worst concentration camp in the Holocaust
and while he was there they lined up random men to take to kill by starvation
and he saw that there was a hurt man with pain in his eyes as it was he had a family
so he offered himself in place of this man and so they took him instead said
Maximilian Kolbe and they went and they put under starvation chamber now what
about one of these Men started dying but they realized that Maximilian was
not and so after two weeks of this actually killed him by lethal injection
on August 14th 1941 and he is one of the holiest men that the church knows and
has come to know and he’s a great inspiration of myself is actually the
