For the love of God and man, once again I raise an anguished cry: May such criminal deeds never be repeated against any ethnic group, against any race, in any corner of this world!
For a long time we have been writing a card only in most urgent cases. But now I am permitted to go beyond that...
I met Sister Teresia Benedicta a Cruce, known in the camp as Edith Stein, in the transit camp at Amersfoort
St. Edith Stein's thank-you to Swiss Carmelites
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.
