AUGUST 14: FEAST OF ST. MAXIMILLIAN KOLBE. He died in a hunger cell in
this building, block 11. To see the room and pray here is a tremendous
experience. OC-Travel came here to Auschwitz on an Easter tour. We were
not permitted to enter the actual room. However, we walked down the
hallway and each person had a moment to look inside the open door.
Everything has been kept original as it was when the Allies liberated
the camp. Only new outdoor barbed wire has replaced the old that decayed
from rust. May the saint from Auschwitz - Prisoner Number 16670 - pray for us.
