St. Edith Stein, nata ebrea ma convertita al cattolicesimo dal 1922, è una studiosa di fama mondiale, assistente del filosofo Husserl. Mentre in Germania aumenta la tensione politica, matura la vocazione religiosa di Edith fino alla decisione di farsi suora carmelitana. Intanto, fuori, si fanno sempre più dure le persecuzioni naziste contro gli ebrei. Anche Edith, in quanto ebrea, viene deportata ad Auschwitz dove va incontro al suo terribile destino.

St. Edith Stein, born Jewish but converted to Catholicism in 1922, is a world renowned scholar, assistant to the philosopher Husserl. While in Germany under increasing political tension, Edith grew in maturity in regards to her religious vocation until she reached the decision to become a Carmelite nun. Meanwhile, outside of Carmel, Nazi persecution of the Jews became more intense. St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, as a Jew, was deported to Auschwitz where she went to meet her terrible fate.

And brillant Maja Morgenstern who is Romanian - the main character played Holy Mary in "Passion" of Mel Gibson. If someone could add English subtitles (or better Polish) it would be great. Thanks for posting that.
