Germaine Tillion, a French ethnologist, soon engaged in the Resistance after the armistice. She became one of the main leaders of the “Musée de l’homme” network, and was arrested and sent to Ravensbrück, the only all-female German concentration camp. After her liberation and the end of the war, she worked on researching and documenting the Nazi concentration universe and the psychology of the camps. This book combines eyewitness testimony with historical analysis.
