A Train in Winter: An Extraordinary Story of Women, Friendship, and Resistance in Occupied France (P.S.) by Caroline Moorehead
A Train in Winter: An Extraordinary Story of Women, Friendship, and Resistance in Occupied France (P.S.)

Elaine Elinson, January 1, 2013

A true history of the women of the French Resistance that is both inspiring and overwhelmingly sad. Moorehead follows a group from the time they were hiding pistols under their pillows, harboring Jews, and distributing leaflets, to when they were arrested by the French police, handed over to the Germans and finally transported to the death camps. Out of hundreds, only a handful survived. Beautifully reconstructed and simply, but powerfully, written.
