The fate of 230 women sent to Auschwitz

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:09 pm on 10 May 2012

During The Second World War, 230 French women were rounded up by the Gestapo for their role in the resistance and were sent to a death camp, instead of a concentration camp. Only 49 returned alive. Biographer Caroline Moorehead has researched the fate of nearly every one of the 49 women and she spoke to four of the survivors who were still alive for her book 'A Train In Winter - A Story of Resistance, Friendship & Survival'.
