Abstract:

In the aftermath of World War I, Polish independence was revived after decades of struggle. As a modern sea harbor was built and schools were founded, both spiritual and material culture flourished. Then in 1939, Adolf Hitler attacked Poland, signaling 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.
