Main Story: St. Maximilian Kolbe was a prisoner at the concentration camp, Auschwitz. He prayed to Mary every day and helped others in time of struggle. When three prisoners escaped, the Nazis lined up ten men to die. Maximilian was not one of them, but volunteered to replace a man who was crying about his family. Maximilian took his place, and the men where put into a bunker where they would starve to death. Maximilian prayed to Mary every day for two weeks, which at that point everyone else had died, so the Nazis decided to inject a lethal acid into his arm, killing him.
