RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 36011544 LA English T1 Convoy to Auschwitz : women of the French resistance A1 Delbo, Charlotte., PB Northeastern University Press PP Boston YR 1997 SN 1555533132 9781555533137 AB On January 24, 1943, 230 women political prisoners, most of whom had worked for the French Resistance, were deported to Auschwitz. Author Charlotte Delbo was one of the 49 who survived. Now available in English for the first time, this haunting volume is Delbo's testament to those who formed the convoy to the hell that was Auschwitz. The prisoners came from all regions of France and represented a wide range of social backgrounds and political views. With a gripping simplicity and poignancy, Delbo recounts the unique life history of each woman, from her childhood to her involvement in the Resistance, from her arrest to her horrifying experience in the concentration camp. Collectively, these stories are a powerful and stirring reminder of the atrocities perpetrated by the Nazis.
