This handsome, heavy medal measures 1" as shown. An endless (over the head) stainless steel curb chain is standard with the 1" medal. A smaller size, 3/4" medal (preferred by most ladies) is also available with a finer, 18" stainless curb chain. The same medal is available in both sizes in a heavy 14 karat gold filled with or without a goldtone chain, or in solid 14 karat gold, without chain. If the chains provided do not suit, order the medal without chain and check out our Neck Chains for other options, styles, and sizes.

St. Maximilian Kolbe, (1894-1941) was a Polish Franciscan priest who gave up his life to replace another Auschwitz prisoner, slated for death in retaliation for a prison escape. Ten men were placed in a starvation bunker and Kolbe saw to it that each man died a peaceful and holy death. Finally, he was the only one left. In order to kill him, he was injected with a lethal poison.
