The Dressmakers of Auschwitz : The True Story of the Women Who Sewed to Survive.

Adlington, Lucy.
2021

At the height of the Holocaust twenty-five young inmates of the infamous Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp were selected to design, cut, and sew beautiful fashions for elite Nazi women in a dedicated salon. It was work that they hoped would spare them from the gas chambers. Weaving the dressmakers' remarkable experiences within the context of Nazi policies for plunder and exploitation, historian Lucy Adlington exposes the greed, cruelty, and hypocrisy of the Third Reich and offers a fresh look at a little-known chapter of World War II and the Holocaust.

Bowler, Kate.

It's hard to give up on the feeling that the life you want is just out of reach. Kate Bowler searches for a way forward as she mines the wisdom (and absurdity) of our modern "best life now" advice industry, which offers us exhausting positivity, trying to convince us that we can out-eat, out-learn and out-perform our humanness. With dry wit and unflinching honesty she grapples with her cancer diagnosis, her ambition, and her faith and searches for some kind of peace with her limitations in a culture that says that anything is possible.
