Pilgrimage to Jasna Gora, a famous monastery in Poland, has been going on since the middle ages. Three and a half million people made pilgrimage to Jasna Gora in 2009. However, during Nazi occupation of Poland by Adolf Hitler in 1939, pilgrimages to Jasna Gora was prohibited. After the war, and liberation of Poland, between 1945 and 1946, some 2 million pilgrims journeyed and gathered at the shrine to re-dedicate themselves to Mary. Pope John Paul was a devotee of the Virgin Mary and made pilgrimages on several occasions to Czestochowa to pray before the Black Madonna.
