Zdenka cecilia schelingova

Blessed Zdenka Cecília Schelingová (December 24, 1916 – July 31, 1955), was a Slovak nun of the Congregation of the Sisters of Charity of the Holy Cross and a victim of communist persecution in the former Czechoslovakia. She was born at Krivá na Orave. She was sentenced in 1952 to twelve (12) years imprisonment for high treason in a fabricated case (sentence was completely canceled from Supreme Court of Slovak Socialist Republic in 1970). She was tortured in prison, which took a great toll on her health. As a result of her poor health, she was released early from prison in April 1955 but it was too late; she died in Trnava, aged 38, later that year as a result of the injuries she suffered. She was beatified by Pope John Paul II in 2003.
