2 editions published in 1990 in German and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Traces the life and writings of Edith Stein in their Jewish aspects. Although she shared, to some extent, the anti-Jewish theology of the Church, she emphasized the Jewish origins of Christianity and the coming salvation of the Jews. Shows from anecdotes and Stein's own letters that she protested vehemently against expressions of antisemitism and anti-Judaism. In 1933 she wrote a memoir describing the Jewish milieu of her childhood in order to counter negative stereotypes of Jews. She also addressed a plea to the pope to issue an encyclical against Nazism. Discusses the meaning of the Holocaust for Christian theology, and questions the Church's interpretation of Stein's death in Auschwitz as Christian martyrdom, arguing that if she was a martyr so were all the Jewish victims. Recalls Stein's own understanding of Jewish suffering as representing that of the crucified Jesus, and suggests that her prayer in Auschwitz makes prayer after Auschwitz possible
