Antonin Kalina and Kinderblock 66

As the memory of World War II fades into history, and the numbers of World War II veterans continue to decline, the evils perpetrated during that war also become more obscure, so I find it heartening when a story comes to us from this time which reminds us that there were and are good men willing to battle evil, then, and also now, because we need reminding.

Antonin Kalina is just such a good man, The man who saved 900 Jewish boys INSIDE a death camp.  Antonin’s story is related to us through the reminisces of several of the boys Antonin saved, and is now preserved for us in a recently released film Kinderblock 66.

God bless him.
