Lang has a shocking tale to tell. He gives detailed character portraits of the principal doctors who carried out medical experiments on female prisoners in Auschwitz-Birkenau between 1943 and 1945. The barbaric work they carried out leaves the reader appalled and speechless. He also describes the lives the experience of internment as well as the preand post-war lives of a number of the imprisoned women whose bodies were used as research material by these doctors. The pain, suffering and humiliation they suffered in the camp seem inconceivable now; and the rage they experienced following the war as they perceived their oppressors were not brought adequately to justice is only too understandable.
