Father Maximilian Kolbe was a loving and compassionate Franciscan priest from Poland. He cared deeply about sharing the message of the Gospel and even published a newspaper and magazine. In 1941, Kolbe was arrested by the Nazis and placed in Auschwitz concentration camp. When ten prisoners were chosen to die by starvation, Kolbe volunteered to replace a young husband and father. The man survived the war and attended Kolbe’s canonization in 1982.

About Tiny Saints
Each Tiny Saint is about 1 inch tall and made from a colorful rubber. Each includes a metal clasp so they can be hooked onto keychains, backpacks, and anywhere else you could use a "tiny saint."
Each Tiny Saint includes a small card with brief history of the Saint depicted and what patronage the Saint is associated with.
