This year, we present a compilation of our blog posts concerning the passion and death of St. Edith Stein, from Echt to Auschwitz
I met Sister Teresia Benedicta a Cruce, known in the camp as Edith Stein, in the transit camp at Amersfoort
After the August 2 arrest of St. Edith and her sister Rosa Stein, the police van drove them from the Carmel of Echt to the police headquarters in Roermond, Holland. Later the same day, they were transported to the Amersfoort transit camp, arriving after midnight August 3. Traveling in the same van with Edith and Rosa was Sister Judith Mendes da Costa, a Dominican nun who was an administrator in the Dominican sanitarium Berg en Bosch in Bilthoven, Holland.
