From Lodz to Auschwitz, Bergen-Belsen, Geislingen, Allach and finally, liberation
A group of Jewish women on a tortuous six-year journey through ghettos, concentration camps and slave labor
von Sybille Eberhardt
The Book: Her latest study was triggered by an intriguing news item stating that a transport list of 800 female concentrating camp prisoners in April 1945 from Geislingen to Allach had been discovered. The names on this list led to a group of Jewish women and girls who were all originally from the Lodz area. Pursuing leads from various archives helped to form a picture of their life and times in that city and its ghetto, their short stay in Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen but also the months they spent in a local concentration camp located in Geislingen while doing slave labor for an internationally known local factory.
The Auther: Sybille Eberhardt, was born in Geislingen, Germany in 1945. She has published several works in connection with local history. The present work is the first one to be translated into English.
She focuses on the Hitler era, especially in connection with Poland. Her mother‘s family lived there and in her first book she highlights the murder of a young Polish farmer in 1940, a neighbor of her grandparents‘.
Her work won a second prize for regional history awarded by the State of Baden-Wuertttemberg in 2019.
