On the same summer day in 1942, St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein) and hundreds of other Catholic Jews were arrested in Holland by the occupying Nazis. Of those arrested, 113 (several of them priests and nuns) perished at Auschwitz and other concentration camps. While St. Teresa Benedicta is the most famous member of this group, all of them deserve the title of martyr. Through extensive research in both original and secondary sources, Fr. Paul Hamans has compiled these martyrs’ biographies, several of them detailed. The book contains remarkable conversion stories, including that of Edith Stein. Illustrated with photographs. Paper.
