This book describes some non-Birkenau-based women's work details through eyewitness accounts. The women worked in camp offices, SS-enterprises, and workshops catering to the comfort of the SS personnel. Some of the perpetrators appear in the accounts also, of course through the eyes of the inmates. The perpetrators are both male and female, and some of the relationships between them, both hierarchically and within the same level, contain important insights--how they lived, how they managed to survive, what were the main problems they had to confront in their struggle for bare existence. Their testimonies together make up a mosaic which has historical as well as psychological interest of the first degree.
