If This is A Woman: Inside Ravensbruck: Hitler's Concentration Camp for Women

by Sarah Helm
£10.99   paperback  Little, Brown Book Group (Abacus) (2015)

If This is A Woman: Inside Ravensbruck: Hitler The compelling story of the only concentration camp for women by the acclaimed author of A Life in Secrets.
On a sunny morning in May 1939 a phalanx of 800 women - housewives, doctors, opera singers, politicians, prostitutes - were marched through the woods fifty miles north of Berlin, driven on past a shining lake, then herded through giant gates. Whipping and kicking them were scores of German women guards.
Their destination was Ravensbruck, a concentration camp designed specifically for women by Heinrich Himmler, prime architect of the Nazi genocide.
For decades the story of Ravensbruck was hidden behind the Iron Curtain and today is still little known. Using testimony unearthed since the end of the Cold War, and interviews with survivors who have never spoken before, Helm has ventured into the heart of the camp, demonstrating for the reader in riveting detail how easily and quickly the unthinkable horror evolved.
