Summary
  • "Auschwitz: the ultimate symbol of the Holocaust or the focal point of Polish martyrdom? These conflicting claims strained Catholic-Jewish relations after Carmelite nuns established a convent on the perimeters of the Auschwitz concentration camp. When a large cross was erected in the convent garden, many Jews regarded this as yet another step towards the Christianisation of Auschwitz." "Highly-charged emotions, misunderstandings and deliberate misinformation fuelled a fifteen year saga which seemed doomed to remain unresolved."
  • "The Battle For Auschwitz tells this story and asks what is the future of Auschwitz-Birkenau? Now that the cross will remain as a memorial to the Polish victims of Nazism, how should the memory of the million Jewish martyrs be preserved?"--Jacket
