Meticulously researched and astutely observed, The Weavers of Trautenau is the first history of the 3,000 Jewish young women and girls detailed to forced labor in the Trautenau region (now in the Czech Republic) during the Holocaust years. Using a panoply of voices, Holc reconstructs their daily lives with great sensitivity. Insights abound as the narrative plumbs the girls’ experiences through an achingly perceptive analysis of their postwar testimonies.
