During the Nazi occupation of Poland, the Salesians tried to continue with their education and youth work, and for this 'crime', Joseph Kowalski was detained, tortured and murdered in Auschwitz.
A month after the martyrdom of Fr Joseph Kowalski in 1942, there were five members of the Salesian Oratory of Poznań in other prison camps.
This is their story.
