Truly inspiring accounts of three victims of the Nazi regime during the Second World War
Marcel Callo, a young Frenchman, was a printer's apprentice and engaged to be married. Edith Stein was a Carmelite nun who had converted from the Jewish faith as a young woman. Titus Brandsma came from a farming family in Holland and later became a Carmelite friar. Each refused to condone the evil of a wicked political system, living and dying for their faith in the freedom of Christ. Pope John Paul II sees the Twentieth Century Church as a Church of Martyrs whose witness must not be forgotten. These moving, stories of ordinary people cannot fail to refresh our faith.
