A Martyr of Nazi Oppression

During the Second World War, Mother Maria Skobtsova distinguished herself in serving the victims of that war in Paris, France.  Arrested and taken to a death camp, Maria quickly took the place of another woman on her way to the gas chambers and so earned a martyr’s crown.  Maria Skobtsova is venerated by millions of Orthodox and others and Orthodox jurisdictions in the U.S. have Glorified her a Saint.  In fact, St. Maria of Paris was Ukrainian - Elizabeth Pilenko.
