A Train in Winter : A Story of Resistance, Friendship and Survival in Auschwitz Paperback / softback

Part of the The Resistance Quartet series

Paperback / softback


A moving and extraordinary book about courage and survival, friendship and endurance – a portrait of ordinary women who faced the horror of the holocaust together. On an icy morning in Paris in January 1943, a group of 230 French women resisters were rounded up from the Gestapo detention camps and sent on a train to Auschwitz – the only train, in the four years of German occupation, to take women of the resistance to a death camp.

Of the group, only 49 survivors would return to France. Here is the story of these women – told for the first time.

A Train in Winter is a portrait of ordinary people, of their bravery and endurance, and of the friendships that kept so many of them alive. ‘A story of stunning courage, generosity and hope’ Mail on Sunday‘Serious and heartfelt...profound’ Sunday Times
