From 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.,

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am so glad that this book was translated to english and published here in the States. Please, don't get me wrong, but it is "nice" to have a book about other victims of the Nazi death camps besides Jewish accounts. It serves to remind us and teach us that others too were sentenced to those Death Camps. Many gypsies, resisters, communists, christians, and lesbians, all from different countries, EVEN GERMANS, were sentenced and died at the camps. This book in particular is a Who's Who, a list of a convoy of resisters (mostly communists) from France (mostly french, but there were other nationalities as well) who lived and died together. Each name has a story, some more than others. Stories from the survivors and from what relatives that could be found after the war.
It's amazing that this book was first published in 1965 and is only now being published here in the US. But I'm glad I got to read it.
