What were the experiences of the women and their captors during the Helmsbrechts Death Marches?

What were the experiences of the women and their captors during the Helmsbrechts Death Marches?

In 1945 women prisoners in concentration camps in south-western Poland and southern Germany were forced to walk until they died either from neglect or from acts of violence. The fact that some women actually survived is nothing short of a miracle. The Helmsbrechts Death Marches were, sadly, only one of many such incidents. This source-based activity is designed for NSW students of the K-10 History Syllabus for the Australian Curriculum. Stage 5 Depth Study 6: The Holocaust
