schema:description"Fifty years after the liberation of the concentration camps, this memoir by Lucie Adelsberger, a Jewish female physician shipped to Auschwitz and put to work in the infirmary of the infamous death camp's Gypsy section, serves as a haunting reminder of the horrors perpetrated by the Nazi regime. In this memoir, Adelsberger vividly describes the Hell that was Auschwitz, uniquely capturing the ordeals suffered by women, who were especially vulnerable once they reached the camps. Throughout her moving memoir, Adelsberger depicts the methods the Nazis used to degrade and dehumanize Jews and other holocaust victims, robbing them of their dignity, their freedom, and oftentimes their lives. Her poignant testament to the human suffering and the human spirit at Auschwitz will stir readers deeply."@en
