In 1943 Stanisława Leszczyńska was arrested by the Gestapo as a result of helping Łódź getto prisoners and sent down to concentration camp Auschwitz-Birkenau together with her three children. There she went through the dreadful trial. Stanisława worked as a midwife facing inhuman conditions, on the edge of exhaustion, she delivered 3000 labours not losing even one child. Her name – as one of four outstanding Polish women of the last century – was placed on The Chalice of Life sacrificed by Polish women at the shrine at Jasna Góra. What was the secret of this extraordinary woman? Where did her strength come from? Why, even facing death, she has never lost faith in what she was doing?
