Through extensive research in both original and secondly sources, Fr. Paul Hamans has compiled these martyrs' biographies, several of them detailed. The book contains remarkable conversion stories, including that of Edith Stein, the German philosopher who had entered the Church in 1922 and later became a Carmelite nun, Sister Teresa Benedicta of the Cross. Several of these witnesses had already suffered for their faith in Christ before falling victim to Hitler's "Final Solution", as they endured both rejection by their own people, including family members, and persecution by the so-called Christian society in which they lived. Among them were those who, like St, Teresa Benedicta, perceived the cross they were being asked to bear and accepted it willingly for the salvation of the world. Illustrated with photographs inside the book.
