The world would later receive him as Saint Pope John Paul II.His name was Karol (Polish for Karl or Charles) Josef Wojtyla.

Jerzy later participated in the dialogue which led to the extension of the Vatican's diplomatic recognition of the State of Israel.He was the second of two sons born to Karol Wojtyla and Emilia Kaczorowska.

The Nazi occupation forces closed the university in 1939 and young Karol had to work in a quarry (1940-1944) and then in the Solvay chemical factory to earn his living and to avoid being deported to Germany.
