Edith Stein, born into a Jewish family in 1891, won renown as a philosophy scholar in pre-World War II Germany. In 1922 she startled her friends and associates by becoming a Roman Catholic, and shortly thereafter, entering the Carmelite order to live in a cloister as a professed sister. In 1942 she was taken from her convent by the Nazis and was murdered at Auschwitz. This selection from her writings, her poems and prayers has been made and translated by her niece, Susanne M. Batzdorff. It also includes a brief biography and seventeen photographs from the family's collection.
