Profound neglect in checking your statements. 1. Maximilain Kolbe offered his life and it has nothing to do with a male lover. He offered his life in place of a prisoner whom he knew to have a family. 2. Your reference to the Stein sisters was not Gerturde who had no sister and survived the war living quite openily in the south of France. The Stein you refer to was Edith Stein who with her ssister Rosa were converts to Catholicism. Edith was a Carmelite nun and the order did send her from her convent in Cologne to one in Holland. She and her sister were deprted to Aushwitz from there. Their deportation, along with many other "non-Aryan" Catholics was a Nazi repsponse to a pastoral letter ordered to be read by Holland's bishops condemning in very strong terms Nazi anti-semitism and the deportations. The Nazis responded to this episcopal directive by no longer exempting non=Aryan Catholics who were then deported to the death camps. 3. There were hundreds of Catholic priests who risked their lives to save Jews, in all the occupied countires. I suggst you begin with the famous case of the priest in Namur, Belgium. Mention of many of the others can be found at Yad Vashem. Do your research before you shoot off your mouth with bullshit.
