DIED: Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, Edith Stein, died at Auschwitz concentration camp seventy years ago. Born to a Jewish family, she was baptised and entered the monastery of the Carmelite Sisters of Cologne. In 1939 she was in Carmel of Echt in the Netherlands and was captured in 1942 during the Nazi searches which were carried out after a letter was sent denouncing the deportations. The letter had been signed by Dutch Catholic bishops and read out in all churches. Up until then, the Nazis had spared baptised Jews: about three hundred clerics of Jewish origin were captured.
