Martyrs´ story of friars Michael and Zbigniew will be translated into Polish

A lmost two years after the publication of the book The Passion of Michael and Zbigniew, the book will be now translated into Polish. The book tells the story of the last hours of the life of Blessed Martyrs Miguel (Michael) Tomaszek and Zbigniew Strzalkowski who were murdered in August 26 years ago by the [now-forbidden] Communist Party Sendero Luminoso [Shining Path] in Pariacoto near Huaraz.

Jan Hruszowiec, representative of the Franciscan Congregation of the Minor Conventual of Friars Krakow – Poland, asked Alex Cordero, the author of the book, his authorisation for the work to be translated into Polish language. Author Alex Cordero agreed to cede his rights, but also said he was actually surprised and pleased that his work will be translated and finally can be read by thousands of Polish citizens who want to know more about the work of the young friars in Peru.

Jan Hruszowiec stated that the book is already well known in Poland, but it is only readable for those who master the Spanish language. Now having obtained the official authorisation of the author, he will print about 3,000 copies initially. As soon as the book is translated and printed, the Ancash Prefect Alex Cordero will be invited to be part of the official presentation of the work in Krakow. Alex Cordero said that he will give away the publishing rights freely, because he considers that the work is not only his, but also of the young and adults of Pariacoto who gave their testimonies to honour the two Polish Martyrs. The book might also be translate into English and Italian in the near future.
