SILENT AS A STONE: MOTHER MARIA OF PARIS AND THE TRASH CAN RESCUE

Author: JIM FOREST, ILLUSTRATED BY DASCHA PANCHESHNAYA #: 8523
Elegantly illustrated in full colour throughout this work will introduce both children and adults to the life of the recently canonized Russian Orthodox nun, Mother Maria Skobtsova. Whilst living a life which even for its time was considered unconventional, she dedicated her life to helping the poor and suffering, in particular the persecuted Jews of Nazi occupied Paris. The story recounted here shows how she was able to save a number of Jewish children from transportation to the Nazi death camps.
