In Edith Stein and Companions on the Way to Auschwitz, Father Paul Hamans, a diocesan priest in the Netherlands, recounts the stories of over twenty Catholic Jews who perished at Auschwitz and other concentration camps. Their deaths were in retaliation to the Dutch bishops protest of the Nazi regime. Saint Teresa Benedicta (Edith Stein), the most famous of this group, was canonized in 1998 by Pope John Paul II. Many of the 113 arrested in 1942 had already been rejected by their own families for joining the Catholic faith before falling victim to Hitler's 'Final Solution.' Here are some of their stories. Paperback. Illustrated with photos.
