Product Details

Searching for God in godless times The Story of Edith Stein. She was a champion of feminism, a Carmelite nun, a German Jew, a martyr in Auschwitz and a canonized saint: Edith Stein. 1962. Young New York Times reporter Michael is sent to Europe to learn about the life of philosopher and feminist Edith Stein. A German Jew who converted to Catholicism and became a nun, she met her end in the gas chamber and was later to become Europe's only Jewish patron saint. Over the course of his travels, Michael meets the various people in Edith's life. From the halls of the university, where she studied and taught, to the trenches of World War l, where she served as a Red Cross nurse and met the only love of her life, to the convent where she spent her final years as a Carmelite nun, fiercely fighting the Nazi regime. Her determination to force the Church to take action from within led to her deportation and death. As he learns more about Edith, Michael comes to realize that her fate was inextricably linked to his own and, like many others, he ultimately owes her his life. Cardinal Christoph Schönborn, Archbishop of Vienna: Edith's life has never been put into film in a better way and this film also has a powerful evangelization potential.
