Summary

Summary

The first complete resource devoted to the SS-Aufseherinnen -- the female guards of the German concentration camps during World War II. In addition, the role of the girl's youth organisation in developing future overseers, and the eventual recruitment, training, and employment of these women is likewise examined. Professor Brown's timely work fills a void in the terrible annals of Nazism; at last, the women guards and their crimes are subject to public scrutiny.
