Auschwitz "early August 1941..."

The Death of Prisoner 16670 Saint Maximilian Kolbe ...

Who volunteered to take the place of Prisoner 5659.

In the NAZI's  infamous "Starvation Bunker..."

From the TFP magazine Crusade. November - December 2012. A snippet from Michael Gorre's article.

"Father Maximilian remained the sole conscious man after ten days of starvation.

"Imitating Our Lord Jesus Christ who stretched His arms forth to accept the Cross, Saint Maximilian stretched his emaciated arm towards the executioner who injected him with carbolic acid.

"It was August 4, 1941, the eve of the feast of the Assumption of Our Lady into Heaven ..."

What a triumphant way for a good Christian to die! :)
