Among many of the blessed Polish relics which have been recently placed at the shrine to martyrs in the Roman Basilica of St. Bartholomew, is also Karolina Kozkowna. Known as the Polish Maria Goretti, she was assassinated at 16 years old by a Russian soldier. Despite the surrounding conflict in 1944, three thousand people attended her funeral. The devotion to Karolina remains strong today and she has been named the patroness of many Polish youth movements.
