Most widely held works by Anna Rosmus
Wintergreen : suppressed murders by Anna Rosmus( Book )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"With the same commitment to exposing Nazi crimes that has made her books Against the Stream and Out of Passau so widely read, Anna Elisabeth Rosmus uncovers the wartime fate of foreign workers, their children, prisoners of war, and Jewish citizens in Wintergreen: Suppressed Murders. The renowned human rights activist recounts a horrific story of slave labor, forced abortions, and mass murder that took place in and around her Barvarian hometown. Until Rosmus began her work, the citizens of the region had successfully avoided acknowledging these atrocities for decades." "In Wintergreen, Rosmus documents the treatment of women from Poland, Russia, Ukraine, and other Eastern European countries who were deported to Germany and put to work as forced laborers. She tells how doctors performed abortions - at times without anesthesia - on these women despite the illegality of such practices for German women and strong opposition by the local and highly influential Roman Catholic church. Rosmus describes the mistreatment of infants in so-called children's homes, where they were intentionally fed spoiled food and the mortality rates were notoriously high." "With an impending German surrender, Passau and its environs witnessed additional carnage. Rosmus sheds light on the united effort of the Hitler Youth, secret police, militia, and German Wehrmacht to massacre thousands of Russian prisoners of war who were being held in the region. The Nazis and their sympathizers forced some prisoners to dig their own graves before being shot; others they threw into the Inn River to drown. In nearby Pocking-Waldstadt, Nazis murdered Jews held in a concentration subcamp, dumping some bodies from moving trains and placing others in hastily dug graves. As disturbing as these crimes are, just as unsettling is the local population's ability to gloss over these acts or to believe that they never happened at all."--Jacket
