Pope John Paul II begins his second trip to West Germany today, and one of the first things on his schedule involves a highly charged religious issue. This is the beatification ceremony here Friday for Sister Theresa, a nun who was killed in the Nazi death camp at Auschwitz in 1942. Sister Theresa was born a Jew named Edith Stein. She declared herself an atheist and then, at age 30, became a Roman Catholic. The question has been raised whether she was executed for being a Catholic or a Jew.
