Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Delbo (Auschwitz and After, LJ 5/1/95) has composed an unusual collective biography as a memorial to 230 women of the French Resistance. Arrested for distributing leaflets; supplying food, arms, and sanctuary to other activists; and the like, these women were sent as a group to Birkenau ("Auschwitz II") in January 1943. Only 49, including Delbo, survived to be liberated. The biographical sketches of each woman include background, circumstances of arrest, Auschwitz number, experiences in camp, and the aftermath. A moving, monumental work; appropriate for Holocaust and women's studies collections in public and academic libraries.Patricia A. Beaber, Trenton State Coll. Lib., N.J.
Lists the names, numbers, families members, and fates of 230 women political prisoners deported to Auschwitz in 1943. Simple, moving entries recount the life history of each woman from her childhood to her involvement in the Resistance, her arrest, and her experiences in the concentration camps. First published in 1965 by "Les Edition de Minuit", Paris. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
