Honors for midwife who saves babies of Auschwitz prisoners
September 30, 2010
The World Prayer Congress for Life, to be held in Rome next month, will honor a Polish midwife who saved hundreds of babies from death at Auschwitz.
Stanislawa Leszczynska delivered over 3,000 babies at Auschwitz. While many were killed at the camp, none died under her care. When babies were taken from their mothers, Leszczynska put a tattoo under the infant’s arm, hoping that it would be possible to reunite mother and child after the war.
