The nine hundred
Believing that they had been called up for three months of government service, 999 young, unmarried Jewish women were tricked into boarding a train in Poprad, Slovakia, on March 25th 1942. The train became the first official transport to Auschwitz and the women were then sold to the Nazis as slave labour by their own government. Drawing on extensive interviews with survivors, historians, witnesses and relatives of those first deportees, this book is an important addition to Holocaust literature and women’s history.
