    Pope Jean Paul II, the first and only Polish pope, who worked hard to bring an end to communism, will soon be canonised as a saint. In Poland, where more than 80% of the population are Catholic, people are preparing to celebrate. Our team went to Wadowice, the town where he was born, to find out more about Jean Paul II from the time when he was known as Karol Wojtyla.
