Has anyone else heard about Ravensbruck, the only concentration camp built to
imprison women? Notables such as Mayor LaGuardia's niece and theTen Boom sisters were in such a hell. Women were subject to brutality in all forms in this hell. They were pressed into slave labor-working until death. There were routine medical experiments by sadistic "doctors". There were gas chambers and crematoriums. Out of 132,000 prisoners, over 90,000 died from horrendous conditions. When the Soviets liberated the camp in 1945, only 3000 were alive.
I have heard of the camp, or a name that was very similar, and knew it was for women. I familiar with the overall acts of brutality by the Nazis during WWII, but have not studied that particular camp. You should do a hub about it.
Bergen-Belsen, where Anne Frank, her sister Margot, and Mrs. Van Daan were sent, was also for women. As a rule, most of the camps were segregated, but Anne Frank wrote in her diary about Westerbook where the genders were mixed, and several females were pregnant as a result.
