— I don’t often blatantly repost old blog material. However, last week I had a conversation with some colleagues about my visit to Auschwitz in 2006, and it made me think about the following post I published three years ago today: I’ve been reminded that today, August 14, is the feast day of St. Maximilian Kolbe. St. Maximilian Kolbe is probably best known for having given up his life to take the place of a fellow prisoner at Auschwitz, where he was martyred on this day in 1941.
