Charlotte Delbo, by Violaine Gelly and Paul Gradvohl

TLS, August 28th, 2013

In January 1943, a convoy of 230 female résistants was deported from Drancy, near Paris, to Auschwitz-Birkenau. Only forty-nine survived, returning to France at the end of the war. Among them was Charlotte Delbo, who would become well known in the English-speaking world two decades later for her books and plays, including her three-part memoir, published in France in 1965, known in English as Auschwitz and After (None of Us Will Return, Useless Knowledge and The Measure of Our Days).
