Michelangelo in Ravensbruck: One Woman's War Against the Nazis

Michelangelo in Ravensbruck: One Woman's War Against the Nazis Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 1939, Countess Karolina Lanckoronska, professor and wealthy landowner, joined the Polish underground, was arrested, sentenced to death, and was held in Ravensbruck concentration camp. There she taught art history to other women who, like her, might be dead in a few days. This inspiring and beautifully written memoir records a neglected side of World War II: the mass murder of Poles, the serial horrors inflicted by both Russians and Nazis, and the immense courage of those who resisted.

Synopsis:

An inspiring memoir that records a neglected side of World War II

About the Author

Countess Karolina Lanckoronska (1898-2002) survived imprisonment and after the war lived in Rome, where she devoted herself to art history and to Polish culture and learning.
