"For the Novitiate of Koningshoeven!“
While their deportation to Auschwitz six Loeb-Sisters met Edith Stein as well. by Anscar Christensen
(kreuz.net) After the Pastoral Protest Letter of the Dutch Bishops against National Socialism in 1942 all Catholics of Jewish descent were arrested in the Netherlands.
Among them they found three sons and three daughters of the Jewish Loeb family. They lived as Trappists in two Dutch Cloisters.
The time of their captivity found the Loeb Sisters in a brilliant society: Doctors, Intellectuals, educated Dominicans and a great Carmelite, Sister Benedicta a Cruce Edith Stein.
Because of her strong character, Sister Benedicta was the natural leader of the group of deported Jewish religious. The Holy Office and the Rosary was prayed in common.
