St. Maximilian Kolbe died in the infamous Auschwitz concentration camp after volunteering to take the place of another prisoner. His relics are displayed at Williamsburg’s San Damiano Mission on a tour up the East Coast. Pilgrims headed to Poland’s World Youth Day are among the many who flock to the Mission to venerate the relics of this martyr. Currents Correspondent Katie Breidenbach reports.
