Rochelle G. Saidel: The Jewish Women of Ravensbruck Concentration camp

Located about fifty miles north of Berlin, Ravensbruck was the only major Nazi concentration camp for women. During its six years of operation, there was a total of about 20.000 Jewish women in the camp. Drawing upon more than sixty narratives and interviews of survivors in the United States, Israel, and Europe as well as unpublished testimonies, documents, and photographs from private archives, Rochelle Saidel provides a vivid collective and individual portrait of Ravensbruck's Jewish women prisoners.
Rochelle G. Saidel is founder and executive director of the Remember the Women Institute in New York and senior scientific researcher at the University of Sao Paulo.
