St. Maximillian Kolbe Pilgrimage

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.
