    Contributing Institution: Graduate Theological Union
    Description: Edith Stein Collection was donated by Susanne M. Batzdorff, a niece of the saint, to the Graduate Theological Union in 2013. Edith Stein (1891-1942), St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, was born into a Jewish family in Breslau, Germany. She became a philosopher, phenomenologist, teacher, feminist, and translator. In 1922, she was baptized into the Roman Catholic Church. Unable to continue as a teacher as a Jew under Nazi rule, she joined the Discalced Carmelites in 1933. In 1942, she and her sister Rosa were arrested in Echt, Holland, and transported to Auschwitz and killed. She was canonized in 1998. The collection follows Edith Stein’s life and writings, along with the ways the Church and others have promoted her life.

    Description: Viktor Frankl Library and Memorabilia collection was established to contain all of Frankl's writings and include all known books and articles about the psychotherapist and logotherapy. After the completion of the GTU Library building in 1987, the collection was transferred to the GTU Archives with books either put into rare or the general circulation. Frankl’s connection with the Bay Area is due to two seminary professors who worked with him in Vienna during the summer. Both Robert Leslie from Pacific School of Religion and Aaron Ungersma of San Francisco Theological Seminary embraced Frankl’s theories as a better approach to pastoral counseling. Leslie became particularly involved in promoting Frankl’s work and maintaining a library for greater study.
