Edith Stein's murder at Auschwitz is a topic of intense controversy among members of the Jewish and Catholic faiths. Some observers, both Jews and Christians, insist that Stein was sent to the gas chambers because of her Jewish heritage and faith, and that it would be inappropriate to declare her a saint in the Christian religious tradition. Yet, others of both faiths find in Stein a healing symbol for our time of the atrocities committed against Jews in Christian nations during World War II. In this volume, members of the Jewish and Christian religious traditions speak to this deeply divided debate.

MEDIA REVIEWS
For those who seek a variety of views eloquently presented-not only on Edith Stein but on more general issues of the Holocaust-this book is quite possibly the best available. It sheds much light that is very much needed on the relation between Jews and the Church, both then and now. -- David Patterson, Oklahoma State University * National Catholic Reporter *
