5.0 out of 5 stars A man who lived his life for God and others!, 12 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Maximilian Kolbe: Saint of Auschwitz (Paperback)
I first heard of Saint Maximilian Kolbe when I read about him, his life and his offering his life in place of another in Auschwitz in a book entitled "Candles in the Dark - Six Modern Martyrs" by Mary Craig.This book has now been revised,retitled "Seven" to include Fr.Jerzy Popielusszko.
Getting back to Maximilian Kolbe:Saint of Auschwitz, this book concentrates on the one man and explains in quite detailed form what he did from his birth to his death and shows what an extremely humble person he was, how dedicated to the Church he was and that nothing on this earth was EVER going to make him break any of his vows and if death was what he had to face then he would face it without fear.
From reading the other review I feel the reviewer MAY be too young an age (from her comments) to have realised exactly WHAT the NAZI's DID and WHO they HAD in their Concentration Camps BUT it is safe to say that ALL the people she has mentioned plus those with medical abnormalities,anyone mentally unsound,priests,what were THEN classed as "mental-defectives",teachers,professional classes,virtually anyone was likely to be scooped-up and thrown in the camps never to be seen again or shot on the spot if they protested.
Kolbe did everything in HIS power up until HIS ARREST to save any and ALL these people at great and ever increasing risk to his OWN LIFE and he knew it!
This is a very good book about a wonderful,special person.
