After reading the book "A Wartime Memoir" by Karolina Lanckorońska a former prisoner in the Ravensbrück Concentration Camp, I decided to learn more about circumstances surrounding the inhuman medical experiments conducted on 74 polish women, who were the political prisoners in the camp. I was particularly moved by the heroic stance of the survivors of the experiments and incredible support they received from all Ravensbrück's inmates.
The most important source of information about the 74 cases of medical experiments in the Ravensbrück Concentration Camp is monography "Experimental operations on prisoners of Ravensbrück Concentration Camp" edited by Wanda Machlejd, published in Poland in 1960.
The information about other aspects of the concentration camp came mainly from four books, two by former prisoners of the camp; the first, the excellent source of facts about the camp with bibliography (unfortunately a book is available only in polish version), by Wanda Kiedrzyńska and the second by Tillion Germaine, both titled "Ravensbrück". The third book "Ravensbrück - Every day life in a Women's Concentration Camp 1939-1945" by Jack G. Morrison is a very interesting analysis of the social and cultural life in the camp, presented in a popular form. I recomend the book as the introduction to more serious studies on the subject of the camp. For those who are interested in the serious studies about the Ravensbrück concentration camp, I recomend the book by Bernhard Strebel "Das KZ Ravensbrück. Geschichte eines Lagerkomplexes"
The list of all my references is presented on a separate page of the website.
The main source of the biographical information about the Nazi doctors was "The Nuremberg Medical Trial 1946/47 Transcripts, Material of the Prosecution and Defence, Related documents" edited by group of German historians in form of microfiche.
The information on the website takes primarily the Polish perspective when presenting facts about the Ravensbrück Concentration Camp. From this, should not be inferred that the other national or political groups of prisoners and the role they played in the camp's community might be less important.
