“I am reminded of your sincere faith,
a faith that dwelt first in your grandmother Lois
and your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, dwells in you as well.”
2 Timothy 1:5 ESV
Something extraordinary happened in the midst of the hopelessness found in the WWII concentration camps. The women shared recipes with each other, some even writing cookbooks. You may be wondering why in the world they did such a thing as the misery and death surrounded them. The truth is—the ‘food talk’ as they called it boosted their sense of community. They taught each other the art of cooking and baking even though they did not possess the ingredients to prepare the recipes. Through this they kept the hope of their culture alive.
