    2. Disclaimer ARC via Netgalley Is anyone else, besides me, tired of movies where men do everything and are the heroes and women are mere appendages Why, for instance, are heroic men usually highlighted in various ways from best Oscar nods to HBO mini series to be the detective who should get smacked This isn t to discredit men, after all the Founding Fathers were men so simply calling them the Founders is a bit, well, facile However, not all women heroes are suffragettes, white women saving poor A [...]

    3. Wow What a chunkster of a book basically 3 books in one Too big a burden to carry most places, and you almost need a bipod to set the thing on while you read it A thick, thick bookd I was riveted to every page Any other book this dense has caused my attention to lapse at least a little, but this one caught my interest early and kept it right through to the Acknowledgements.Ravensbruck was an anomaly as far as death concentration camps were concerned Officially I suppose it s a concentration camp [...]

    4. I understood now what this book should be a biography of Ravensbr ck beginning at the beginning and ending at the end, piecing the broken story back together again as best I could The book would try to throw light on the Nazis crimes against women, showing, at the same time, how an understanding of what happened at the camp for women can illuminate the wider Nazi story.Brief History lesson Ravensbr ck, the largest concentration camp for women, was constructed in 1938 and officially opened in May [...]

    5. It has taken a fortnight to read this book or, rather, to LIVE this book It is haunting, horrifying and a major work How Sarah Helm endured writing it is almost beyond belief Write it quickly, she was advised but here it is over 600 pages of exhaustive research and interviews, of digging out obscure records and lively interviews.

    6. This is a detailed historical account of life in Ravensbr ck, the only German concentration camp designed solely for women It covers the camp from its inception as a place to punish the unwanted in pre war German society i.e communists, Jews, prostitutes, lesbians, etc , it s evolution into a massive slave labor machine, and finally its conversion into a full blown extermination camp Ravensbr ck fell behind the Iron Curtain after the war and it seems that most societies didn t want to hear about [...]

    7. Reviewed in advanced reading copy under the title Ravensbruck Life and Death in Hitler s Concentration Camp for Women , by Sarah Helm Sarah Helm has done an enormous feat of research and investigation the story of Ravensbruck, the one camp in the Nazi system specifically for women victims, could well have been obscured or lost The Nazis, as she shows, tried to eliminate documentation and witnesses the site was behind the Iron Curtain for decades and mostly leveled for a Soviet army base even aft [...]

    8. This review originally appeared on my blog, Leeanna I have read a lot of books on World War II and the Holocaust, from history textbooks to historical fiction to survivor memoirs There s a lot of literature out there, and for good reason It s something we should never forget or allow to happen again But RAVENSBR CK is one of those books that stands out, and for another good reason it s about the only concentration camp designed for women I spent almost 21 hours reading RAVENSBR CK, and consider [...]

    9. This book took me a really long time to read I had to put it down for a few months It is incredibly well researched and the author pulls no punches The book is historical but told in categories and chronology Ravensbruck was a concentration camp in eastern Germany built to re educate women In the beginning, the prisoners were mostly political and asocials A large majority were Polish Of particular interest, Himmler allowed medical experiments to be performed on 76 young, healthy women, beginning [...]

    10. In If This is a Woman, Sarah Helm has written utterly phenomenal study She tells of the atrocities of Ravensbruck, a German concentration camp during the Second World War, and the only one of its kind exclusively for women prisoners It is the first book to write extensively about Ravensbruck, one of the final camps to be liberated by the Russians Only ten percent of Ravensbruck s prisoners were Jewish, contrary to a lot of other camps the rest were arrested due to opposition to the Nazi Party, a [...]

    11. If this is a woman took me a while to read And most of you will know by now that I can have a bit of a habit of speed reading through the boring bits of a book, or if the topic just doesn t grab me at the time If this is a woman demands to be read, and even through the hardest parts to read, Sarah Helm commands respect for the material at hand That it took so long for an in depth analysis of Ravensbruck is a shame in itself there are stories that are screaming to be told from these walls, and wi [...]

    12. Sarah Helm brings attention to a part of WW2 history that doesn t get discussed quite often or get the attention it deserves A women only prison set on German soil and run mostly by women as labor camp The extent to which women were separated and differentiated is hardly surprising at this point Jews were in minority where as asocials prostitutes, lesbians, small time criminals were large in number Helm has interviewed women, guards and auxiliary personnel to compile this book She notices early [...]

    13. Just north of Berlin, and hidden behind the Iron Curtain after World War II, Ravensbruck was a concentration camp unlike any other Ninety percent of the camp s prisoners were not Jewish they were members of the Resistance, political prisoners, asocials , lesbians, and prostitutes And they were all women.It s not easy to pick up a 700 page book on any topic, but reading a doorstop focused on the Holocaust turns that challenge up a notch You can see clear evidence in many of the reviews of Ravensb [...]

    14. 3.5 starsHoly geez, this book took FOR EV ER to finish I appreciate the research that Helm did but man, my head hurts How do you even rate something like this PROS Horrifying fascinating that anyone actually survived that The things they went through By far the most disturbing thing I have ever read And I read a LOT Superb detail on something that almost no one knows about Amazing camaraderie and strength among some of the women that helped others, fought back, found ways to get their story outN [...]

    15. It has been seventy years since the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps at the end of World War II One would think that there would be very little to learn about what occurred during the Nazi genocide of European Jews and persecution of other minorities and groups during the war, but that is not the case In Sarah Helm s new work, RAVENSBRUCK LIFE AND DEATH IN HITLER S CONCENTRATION CAMP FOR WOMEN, the author reconstructs the history of the camp whose documentation was mostly hidden from t [...]

    16. Ten stars, if I could How do you write a 700 page book on one of the most secret concentration camps during WWII By talking to as many survivors as you can Sarah Helm undertook this Herculean task, which mere mortals would shrink from I don t know how she listened to their testimonies, day after day, then sat down to sort it all out and write the most comprehensive history of a camp we will ever have This is a hard, difficult, painful read But it is owed to every woman to survived and died in th [...]

    17. What can I say about this book It is emotionally devastating It took me longer to read this than it normally would have but I had to take an emotional break from it several times It s incredibly difficult to read, only in an emotional sense I finished it because I feel as though I owed it to the women of Ravensbruck to finish it Their stories deserve to be heard This is an incredibly thorough, incredibly researched book The stories of the women, some named and others who remain nameless, should [...]

    18. Sarah Helm brings sensitivity, strong research and solid writing to her latest book, Ravensbruck Life And Death In Hitler s Concentration Camp For Women Read the rest of my review here

    19. This book is a very detailed account of what happened in Ravensbruck, the Nazi concentration camp for women The amount of detail is stunning I have now been truly educated on Ravensbruck Heartbreaking.

    20. This concentration camp is mentioned in The Nightingale The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society so I became interested If anyone is interested in true horror stories I recommend this.

    21. This is one of the best historical non fiction books I have read in a long time The strength and bravery that these women showed in the face of such horrific circumstances was awe inspiring I really liked how the author considered all nationalities involved and I believe her approach to the topic was considerate, factual and respectful The stories of humanity and compassion that arose from such depravity made this book hard to put down Definitely deserves attention I can t rate it high enough.

    22. Temporarily setting this aside until the March paperback release, when I will buy it It s amazing, but enormous, so a little too much pressure to read with library due dates looming And I don t always have the fortitude to read it, given the subject matter.

    23. Wow This took me almost 3 months to read and not because I was a slacking off It s immensely dense and chock full of information, just as I love history books to be.Read with caution The author pulls no punches in depicting an accurate look at Ravensbrueck and those who were imprisoned there However, I came away a changed person.

    24. Este um livro pesado, n o s pelo seu tamanho que na minha edi o de ebook tinha 1173 p ginas , mas sim pela crueza do relato.Quando inicio a leitura de livros sobre o Holocausto vou sempre mentalizada para encontrar o pior, mas o livro de Sarah Helm desarmou me completamente um relato muito bem estruturado, de v rias sobreviventes e n o s , sobre o campo de Ravensbr ck, um campo de concentra o s para mulheres e que impressiona pela crueldade das atrocidades que foram cometidas pelos nazis, n o s [...]

    25. This is truly an outstanding book I know most people are going to be reluctant to read a 600 page book about such a somber subject, but Helm does an excellent job of not focusing only on the atrocities though they re all here in graphic detail but also equally on the bravery and resilience of the women who were imprisoned in Ravensbruck Their stories deserve to be known Highly recommended read.

    26. All my respect goes to Sarah Elm for writing this book in such a manner that 700 pages are keeping you constantly interested which is not a usual thing at least for me I m still trying to comprehend the fact that this was a reality in some point in history.

    27. It is a very rare book that leaves me physically ill as I read And hauntingwhy did I keep reading this before bed Generally, I ll only rate a book with five stars if I loved it enough to purchase and read it again, but I feel that it s a statement if how important this book is.

    28. What an eye opener of a book This is a very compelling and gripping real life tragedy that played out for women during Hitler s regime.
