The Dressmakers of Auschwitz

THE DRESSMAKERS OF AUSCHWITZ 
They sewed to survive… 
Drawing from diverse sources - including interviews with the last surviving seamstress - The Dressmakers of Auschwitz follows the fates of these brave women. Their bonds of family and friendship not only helped them to endure persecution, but also to play their part in camp resistance.

At the height of the Holocaust twenty-five young Jewish inmates of Auschwitz-Birkenau were selected to create beautiful fashions for elite Nazi women, in a dedicated salon established by the camp commandant’s wife.  

Join Historian Lucy Adlington to find out more about their lives and fates as she discusses her bestselling book The Dressmakers of Auschwitz: a remarkable true story of resilience, camaraderie, and quiet heroism in the most extreme circumstances.
