There is, in all of Janine Holc’s work, an ethical care that is simply breathtaking. The coerced labor experiences of girls and young women during the Holocaust have remained a woefully understudied topic; in this beautiful book they are at the center. With her technique of juxtaposing diverse perspectives on incidents of extraordinary, wrenching intensity, and her tender, multidimensionally nuanced interpretations, Holc has made the voices of testimony-
givers matter in wholly new ways.
