In October 1941, the Wehrmacht captured the city of Taganrog on the Azov Sea. In May 1942, the only seventeen-year-old Lydia Gavrilova was abducted along with many other residents as a forced laborer in the 'Third Reich'. First, she had to work in a brick factory and toil at a colliery in the Ruhr area, later on a farm in Münsterland. Because of an escape attempt, she was taken to the concentration camp Bergen-Belsen, where she was abused for medical experiments. She describes how she survived this ordeal in this poignant memoir.
