Unheard Voices: Women & Children under German occupation in Poland
Listen to a fascinating discussion on the experience of women and children under German occupation in Poland during the Second World War, more specifically in Concentration Camps like Auschwitz and Forced Labour Camps in Germany.
How did the experiences differ? Another burning question that needs to be answered is, were the strategies of survival for women, the same as for children? These are just some of the many questions that we address.

Her research focuses on the fates of various prisoner groups: Jehovas Witnesses/scholars of Holy Scripture, Christian clergymen, Roma, political prisoners from various European countries. She also researches the medical atrocities that were carried out at the camp. She is the author of numerous publications on these issues (e.g. Więzieni za wiarę. Świadkowie Jehowy w KL Auschwitz, Oświęcim 2002; Duchowieństwo i życie religijne w Auschwitz [in:] „Katecheta”, Poznań 2011; Życie religijne więżniów chrześcijańskich w KL Auschwitz [in:] „Głosy Pamięci”, Oświęcim 2019).
