From National Book Award nominee, 999: THE EXTRAORDINARY STORY OF THE FIRST WOMEN IN AUSCHWITZ is the untold story of the 999 young, unmarried Jewish women who were tricked into boarding a train in Poprad, Slovakia on March 25, 1942. It became the first official transport to Ausc...hwitz. Believing that they had been called up for three months of government service, these women were 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, 999 is an important addition to Holocaust literature and women's history.
