The Woman Without a Number

Valutazione: 2.5 stelle su 52.5/5 (3 recensioni)
Lunghezza: 302 pagine4 ore


As seen on BBC television - The Woman Without a Number is the inspirational story of holocaust survivor Iby Knill, whose early childhood was spent in Czechoslovakia before her parents - alarmed at the persecution of Jews in Germany - smuggled her over the border to Hungary.
While there, she was caught by the Security Police, imprisoned and tortured, not just for having Jewish connections, but for being in Hungary illegally and for aiding the resistance movement. Eventually, she was sent to the infamous Auschwitz-Birkenau camp.
In June 1944, Iby left Auschwitz-Birkenau by volunteering for labour at a hospital unit. Transported to Lippstadt, she was put in charge of a hospital and risked her life protecting the weak and helpless from the gas chambers before being freed by Allied Forces at Easter, 1945, and going on to marry a British Officer.
This, then, is a truly remarkable tale that has waited sixty years to be told.
