    This book hooked me from the beginning and has stayed with me long after I finished. I have not read a book that gives an illustration of the lives of survivors in the years after, i found it insightful and heartbreaking. Definitely an important read.

    A Train in Winter

    This books tells The story of 200 French women who were sent to concentration camps in Germany. Some of these women were in the French resistance, others were Communist, and others were sent for no reason. There were few survivors and this is their story of women's friendship and compassion.

    A difficult book to read. The Horrors of WWII

    The book was difficult to read because it was full of facts and names. It reads like a documentary and is very dry. However, the stories of these courageous women needs to be told. How they fought for their country and ultimately for their lives. Most of the camp survivors are gone by now, but their stories live on in this well researched book. Kudos to Caroline Moorehead for all of the research and writing.

    Tells the stories of a group of women in the French resistance during WWII, their capture by the Germans and their suffering in concentration camps. Some women were active agents in the French resistance, some sheltered people in their "safe house", while others were simply "snitched upon" by someone who held a grudge. Finally we learn of their lives after the war. An excellent read, hard to put down.
