In the aftermath of World War I, Polish independence was revived after decades of struggle. As a modern sea harbour was built and schools were founded, both spiritual and material culture flourished. Then in 1939, Adolf Hitler attacked Poland, signalling the start of World War II. Most people know that the Polish Jews were quickly gathered for the purpose of extermination, but few are aware that a similar fate awaited the Polish clergy. Among these clergy was Kazimierz Majdansk, who later would become an Archbishop of Poland. YOU SHALL BE MY WITNESSES is intended as a witness to the author's own prison experiences during the years of World War II. But this book does more than detail Hitler's war against the faithful. YOU SHALL BE MY WITNESSES also asks us to look forward to see where civilization is headed. Most important, it prompts us to choose not the civilization of death, but the blessing of the God of life.

Author Biography - Kazimierz Majdanski
Kazimierz Jan Majdansk, 1916 - 2007, was among thousands of Polish clergy imprisoned by the Nazis. After his release in 1945, Majdansk was ordained as a priest and dedicated himself to the "civilization of life." In 1975, with help from his good friend Pope John Paul II, then Archbishop Wojtyla, he established the Warsaw-based Institute for Studies on the Family. Majdansk was appointed Archbishop in 1992.
