A Rose in Winter – Edith Stein UK / 2018

“As a child of the Jewish people who, by the grace of God, for the past eleven years has also been a child of the Catholic Church, I dare to speak about that which oppresses millions of Germans.” — Edith Stein

A Rose in Winter is the story of a woman at the outset and rise of National Socialism in Germany whose search for Truth and Love made her one of the most compelling characters in Jewish history, as well as the patron saint of Europe’s Christendom.

Unwilling to flee from Hitler’s death machine, Edith Stein chose the path of uncompromising courage by entering the Catholic Church and becoming a Carmelite nun, and challenged the very foundation of the Holy See to stand up against the Nazi ascent: a path which would lead to her death in Auschwitz.
