On October 7, 1944 the special squad of Auschwitz slaves called the Sonderkommandos blew up Crematorium IV with homemade grenades made with gunpowder stolen by female slaves employed in the nearby munitions factory. Author and literary journalist Sharon Abron Drache will present the story of the unlikely women smugglers, focusing on the two sisters Wajcblum and the memoir written by one of them, Anna, which won the 2001 Ottawa Book Award.
