About this book
The one and only account of one woman's experience of labour camps under Hitler and Stalin. Having survived both the Soviet and Nazi concentration camps, she was a key witness in the trials in Paris, when the Communists tried to deny the existence of Gulags.
From 1935, the author and her second husband, Heinz Neumann, were political refugees in Moscow. In April 1937, Neumann was arrested by the secret police. She was arrested in 1938. This book describes the two years of suffering she endured in the Soviet prisons and in the Central-Asian concentration and slave labour camp of Karaganda.
