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

Based on letters and documents written by Catholic Sisters during the Second World War, this book tells the remarkable story of these brave and faithful women. 


From running contraband to hiding Jews, from spying for the Allies to small acts of sabotage, these courageous women risked their lives to help defeat the Reich. 


This is a story that needs to be told.
