Review quote

"Lest Nazi Germany's brutalities be forgotten, this understated, appalling book, which first appeared in German in 1956, ought to remain perpetually in print . . . In May 1943, [Dr. Adelsberger] was transported to Auschwitz-Birkenau, where, under the general supervision of Josef Mengele, she was permitted to practice her profession . . . Her account of the starvation, cruelty, and sadism meted out to women and children against the backdrop . . . of the flames and stench from burning bodies will long remain in the minds of readers."--Booklist
