Description

Ravensbruck Concentration Camp is the worst atrocity ever committed solely against women, but today the name of the camp is barely known. From Ravensbruck’s earliest days, when Himmler offered his own land for the camp, this book follows every stage of the story through to the camp’s liberation by the Red Army. Based on meticulous research, ‘If This Is A Woman’ lays bare the systematic brutalisation of mothers, pregnant women, children and babies. It details the extremes of cruelty enacted by SS guards and of suffering experienced by the prisoners, who were themselves reduced to inhuman acts. But at the heart of this book are stories of heroism and survival.
