On our way back to Warsaw, we will stop in Niepokalanow to see the Sanctuary of Our Lady of the Immaculate and St. Maksymilian Maria Kolbe. Before the outbreak of World War II, 760 monks lived in the monastery. During the war, it was a shelter for soldiers wounded in the September Campaign and for many other refugees. Inhabitants of the monastery were also affected by the warfare. Maksymilian Kolbe, arrested in February 1941 together with four other monks, died in the Auschwitz concentration camp half a year later.
Only a few of the pre-war buildings survived in Niepokalanow until today. Particularly noteworthy is the so-called old wooden chapel, considered the cradle of the monastery. The Franciscan Fathers Publishing House operates in the monastery. Today's Niepokalanow is an important pilgrimage center in central Poland.
