Edith Stein

Or St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross if you prefer

This is a good icon of her I found.

Many consider it offensive that she gained the status of martyr because she died in Auschwitz. They argue it's somehow anti-semetic because she died for being Jewish yet she converted. Personally, I don't get why it's such a big deal. St. Maxamilian Kolbe did the same thing for being a Catholic.
