Ravensbrück was the only concentration camp with solely female occupants; today it is barely known. Sarah Helm has written the definitive account of the camp, singling out many acts of heroism among the atrocities.Drawing on newly-translated testaments and research, David Cesarani’s Final Solution: The Fate of the Jews 1933-49 demonstrates the surprising lack of inevitability in the events that culminated in the Holocaust. The authors will be talking to Anne Sebba.
