The Ravensbruck Prayer

Today's prayer comes from Sheri's blog. It is a prayer that was found scrawled on a piece of wrapping paper in the Ravensbruck Concentration camp (the only major Nazi concentration camp for women). Some sources say it was found on the body or in the clothing of a dead child.


Remember not only the men and women of good will
but all those of ill will.

Do not only remember all the sufferings they have subjected us to.

Remember the fruits we brought forth thanks to this suffering –
Our comradeship
Our loyalty
Our humility
Our courage and generosity,
the greatness of heart that all of this inspired.
And when they come to judgement,
let all those fruits we have borne
be their reward
and their forgiveness.

  1. Oh my goodness, how powerful. It reminds me of Corrie tenBoom and her sister Betsy in the Hiding Place.

  2. It reminded me of the Ten Booms as well, Wanda. It wouldn't surprise me in the least if Betsy Ten Boom penned it. Corrie described Betsy as having just such a spirit.

    Such beauty and humility...........
