"Originally published in Great Britain in 2011 by Chatto & Windus"--T.p. verso.
Part one. An enormous toy full of subtleties -- The flame of French resistance -- Daughters of the Enlightenment -- The hunt for registers -- Waiting for the wolf -- Indulgent towards women -- Recognising the unthinkable -- "We have other plans for them" -- Frontstalag 122 ; Part two. Le Convoi des 31000 -- The meaning of friendship -- Keeping alive, remaining me -- The disposables -- Pausing before the battle -- Slipping into the shadows.
In January 1943, the Gestapo hunted down 230 women of the French Resistance and sent them to Auschwitz. This is their story, told in full for the first time--a searing and unforgettable chronicle of terror, courage, defiance, survival, and the power of friendship to transcend evil that is an essential addition to the history of World War II.
