Karol's youth was influenced by numerous contacts with the vibrant and prospering Jewish community of Wadowice. He often played football (soccer), as a goalkeeper, and was a supporter of Polish club Cracovia. School football games were often organized between teams of Jews and Catholics, and due to the anti-Jewish feelings of the time, there was a potential for events to sometimes turn ‘nasty’. Karol, however, cheerfully offered himself as a substitute goalkeeper on the Jewish side if they were short of players.
