In Aunt Edith Susanne Batzdorff gives us an intimate and vivid portrait of her aunt in her formative years as well as the story of the extended Stein family and their various relationships of affection, reserve, disappointments, triumphs and joys. The book is also a loving memoir of a closely knit family facing the approaching horror of Nazi conquest and its consequent diaspora. Includes eight pages of family photos. This second edition contains two new chapters featuring details of St. Edith's canonization and a complete translation of the letter released by the Vatican in February 2003 that Edith Stein wrote to Pope Pius XI expressing her burning concern about what was happening in Germany under the new Hitler regime in the spring of 1933.
