This year’s book, Edith Stein: A Biography by Waltraud Herbstrith, is the untold story of the philosopher, Carmelite nun, and mystic who lost her life in the death camps of Auschwitz. Edith Stein is one of the most significant women Germany has produced. All over the world, men and women of every profession and religious persuasion have recognized in her life — as a Jew, Christian, scholar, professional woman and finally, as a victim of totalitarianism — the marks of a follower of Jesus. A prayerful woman of deep spirituality and authentic mystical experience, Edith Stein remained an influential, active philosopher all her life.
