500    "Lives of the saints" 
500    Translation of: Maximilien Kolbe : un saint à Auschwitz. 
520    It's July 1941 in the Auschwitz concentration camp in 
       German-occupied Poland. Franciscan priest Maximilian Kolbe
       steps forward. "Let me take this man's place," he says, 
       thereby volunteering to die in the place of a stranger who
       had just been condemned to death by his Nazi captors. By 
       means of this singular deed, Fr. Kolbe laid down his life 
       for a complete stranger. Those who know little of Fr. 
       Kolbe may dismiss this as an impulsive act, soon 
       regretted. On the contrary his voluntary sacrifice of his 
       life was, in fact, the crowning achievement of nearly 
       forty years of Christian love, devotion, and even 
       martyrdom that he had freely and deliberately agreed to 
       accept when he was only twelve years old. In the decades 
       leading up to his self-sacrifice in Auschwitz, Fr. Kolbe 
       became a monk; earned a doctorate in Rome; taught 
       seminarians in college; established what soon became a 
       thriving religious order (the Militia Immaculatae); 
       founded a popular religious magazine, a monastery (where, 
       before his arrest, he hid thousands of Jews from the 
       Nazis), a religious radio station, and a wartime hospital;
       and even created and served as publisher of the largest 
       religious newspaper in Europe, whose many issues opposed 
       Nazi evil and were circulated to readers throughout the 
       Continent. Fr. Kolbe also traveled with a few companions 
       to Nagasaki, where he set up a monastery to serve the 
       Japanese people.
