Zofia Posmysz. Szrajberka. 7566. Auschwitz 1942–1945

During 1942–1945 Zofia Posmysz was a prisoner at Auschwitz-Birkenau, where she worked in the kitchen and the food warehouse as a scribe. She survived the death march to the KL Ravensbrück, spending the final months of the war in the Neustadt-Glewe camp. After the war she devoted herself to becoming a writer and educator and became a journalist. The experience of the Holocaust became her mission. The richly illustrated publication is a compilation of Zofia Posmysz’s reminiscences and stories recorded by Maria Anna Potocka.
