Join HBI when we speak with Janine Holc, author of The Weavers of Trautenau, who uses a fresh approach to post-war testimony collections – many of which are shared with the reader – to reconstruct the forced labor experiences of Jewish girls and women, including the remarkable risks they undertook to survive.
The Weavers of Trautenau is “a startlingly intelligent, beautiful book that explores the nature of forced labor and female survival networks and reveals through radical empathy the hidden story of 3000 Jewish women in the Schmelt camps.” – Anna Hájková, author of The Last Ghetto: An Everyday History of Theresienstadt
