Strangers to one another, hailing from villages and cities across France -- 230 brave women united in defiance of their Nazi occupiers -- they were eventually hunted down by the Gestapo. In January 1943, they were sent to their final destination: Auschwitz. Only forty-nine would return to France. Includes an Index. "An extremely moving and intensely personal history of the Auschwitz universe as experienced by these women. . . . A powerful and moving book." -- Times Literary Supplement (UK)
