Sisters of the Resistance: The Nuns Who Defied the Nazis

by Dennis J. Turner

Throughout the occupied territories, Catholic sisters were active in resistance to the Nazis

Based on letters and documents - not seen for seventy years - written by the Catholic Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur during the Nazi occupation of Belgium, this book tells the remarkable story of these brave and faithful women, and how they resisted the German forces.

In great detail, these letters document the lives of the sisters and convents under the Nazi regime, revealing the hardships of being bombed and constant hunger, and the executions of innocents.

But they also tell the story of how these remarkably courageous women worked to help defeat the Nazis.

Throughout the occupied territories, Catholic sisters were active members of the resistance. From running contraband to hiding resisters and Jews, and from spying for the allies to small acts of sabotage, these extraordinary women risked their lives to save others and to help bring an end to the war.

This is a story that deserves to be told.
