Delbo, Charlotte. Auschwitz et après...aucun de nous ne reviendra. Paris : Éditions de Minuit, 1965.

Charlotte Delbo joined the French Resistance in 1941 to aid the “Politzer group” in publishing clandestine literature. She was arrested in 1942, transferred to Romainville, and then deported to Auschwitz. Delbo was one of the 49 women who escaped the convoy to Auschwitz, but was recaptured and sent to Ravensbrück in 1944. This book is a poetic reflection on her experiences in Nazi concentration camps. After the war, Delbo worked for the United Nations.

Tillion, Germaine. La traversée du mal: entretiens avec Jean Lacouture, Edited by Jean Lacouture. Paris: Arléa, 1997.

This is the story of an extraordinary woman: at first one of the leaders of the Resistance, heading the Musée de l'homme network, then prisoner from 1942 to 1945 at Ravensbrück. In the 1950s, she focused her ethnological work on Algeria, North Africa, and the whole of the Middle East.
