Our brother Anton, from the community of the Beatitudes, reports that the booklet "Edith Stein" is now available on internet for all who might be interested.


In 1998, the Hebrew translation of the booklet "Edith Stein, Daughter of Israel, Victim of our Times" was published. The original was written by Waltraud Herbstrith, a German Carmelite nun and was translated into Hebrew by Eric Weiss. The booklet contains many illustrations and tells the life story of this German Jewish woman who would become an important philosopher. She would be baptized and later enter a Carmelite convent only to perish in the Shoah. Pope John Paul II proclaimed her a saint in 1998.
