Rate this:
A Train in winter describes the experiences of 230 French women held under brutal conditions by the Gestapo just outside Paris. Some were active in the French Resistance, but many others had been arrested for a single, impulsive gesture (like a 15-year old girl who simply scrawled a small "V" for victory on the wall of her school) - or for no reason at all. Drawn primarily from personal, in-depth interviews with survivors, these accounts sensitively portray the women who forged unbreakable bonds of loyalty, trust, and friendship in a crucible of hate.
