Welcome to Faithful to the End - the website devoted to the Five Blessed Martyrs from the Salesian oratory in Poznań.


    On 24 August 1942, after unfair trial five pupils from Salesian oratory in Poznań were guillotined at the courtyard of the Dresden prison. Their lives, sufferings and deaths are testimonies of heroism, of which are capable young people. As the Pope John Paul II rightly named them the guardians of the morning, young people are willing to notice every grain of good, the truth and beauty, which exist in the world, and what's more important, willing to announce to rise of the Sun who is Jesus Christ.
