During WWII these Polish nuns offered their lives so that others might live

The martyrs of Nowogródek prayed to God that the Nazis would kill them instead of a group of prisoners.
In 1942 the Nazis invaded the small town of Nowogródek, which had a mixed population of Poles, Jews, and Russians. They quickly began to hold mass executions in the town, rounding up anyone who was not sympathetic to their viewpoint.
Yet, in the midst of all the suffering, there was a single priest remaining who would offer daily Mass and a small group of religious women who daily prayed to God for liberation.
Then in 1943 the Nazis rounded up another group of 120 prisoners and it was their intention to kill them all.
