Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This unique and profoundly moving memoir of life in the concentration camps and afterward was written by a French female resistance leader, a non-Jew who became an important literary figure in postwar France. Now available in English in its entirety for the first time, this book includes vignettes, poems, and prose poems that speak eloquently of horror, heroism, and conscience.

Synopsis:

Charlotte Delbo was handed over to the Gestapo in 1942 for planning to hand out anti-German leaflets. She was sent to Auschwitz, then Ravensbruck, where she remained until the end of the war. This book is a memoir of her time in these camps, a transformation of experience into prose.
