The Ulma Family: Models of the Beatitudes

Józef Ulma/1943
Wiktoria Ulma with her children, wife of Józef Ulma, Polish World War II heroes killed summarily for hiding Jews in their home, named Righteous among the Nations by Yad Vashem posthumously.

COMMENTARY: The nine members of the Polish family, who will be beatified Sept. 10, willingly accepted persecution on account of their love for Christ — a love that led them to the defense of others.
