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 account, 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 ;
