Artist's description:

Maximilian Kolbe was a Polish Conventual Franciscan Friar, who volunteered to die in place of a stranger in the German death camp of Auschwitz, during World War II. -- When three prisoners disappeared from the German concentration camp, 10 men were selected to be starved to death in an underground bunker to deter further escape attempts. When one of the selected men cried out, "My wife! My children!", Maksymilian Kolbe volunteered to take his place. In 1982, Kolbe was declared a martyr and canonized as a saint by Pope John Paul II. Kolbe is also the patron saint of drug addicts, political prisoners, families, journalists, prisoners, and the pro-life movement.
