Poland: Saint Maximilian Kolbe and blessed Ulma Family were canceled at the WWII Museum

 The museum management, headed by Rafał Wnuk, removed from the exhibition the portrait of Father Maksymilian Kolbe, as well as a photograph of the Ulma family.

On 10 October 1982, Pope John Paul II canonized Father Kolbe and declared him a martyr of charity. The Catholic Church venerates him as the patron saint of amateur radio operators, drug addicts, political prisoners, families, journalists, and prisoners. John Paul II declared him "the patron of our difficult century".

Józef and Wiktoria Ulma are recognized as Righteous Among the Nations, and the entire family (they had 7 children) is honored in the Catholic Church as martyrs after their beatification by Pope Francis . Their liturgical memory is celebrated on July 7 (the wedding anniversary of Józef and Wiktoria).

The museum's management did not provide any explanation for their actions. All we know that it was done after hours, in the middle of the night.

You can be a martyr and still get canceled by the extreme left politicians and activists.
