University of Nebraska at Lincoln - Library
The testimony was given to Elsie Thomas of the University of Nebraska at Lincoln by Caroline Ferriday. Ferriday received the testimony from a "French friend" who wished to remain anonymous. Because of the delicate condition of the original, Ms. Thomas had it photocopied and presented the copy to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum Archives along with an English translation prepared by an unknown translator.
Consists of copies of a memoir of an anonymous Holocaust survivor. A member of the French resistance, the young woman was captured by the Gestapo and subjected to severe treatment. The testimony describes her deportation from France to Ravensbrück, slave labor in a German plane factory, experiences with female SS guards, her many illnesses as a prisoner, and her eventual liberation by the Red Army.
