Forgotten Women of Buchenwald

The Exploitation of Female Inmates in the Armament Industry

In the past decades little attention has been paid to the fates of the female inmates of Buchenwald. Based on twenty-four representative biographies, the exhibition "Forgotten Women of Buchenwald" is the first documentation of the lives of women and girls in the subcamps of Buchenwald Concentration Camp: their merciless exploitation on the one hand, their will to survive on the other.
