Saint Maximilian Kolbe

Saint Maximilian Kolbe, painting, St. Francis of Assisi church, Catania

This portrait of a recently beatified Franciscan friar was hanging in the St. Francis of Assisi church. He was interned at Auschwitz and traded his own life to save another prisoner who was a stranger to him. How he came to be in Auschwitz is not known to me.
