Dr. Maria Kusmierczuk, physician from Gdansk and Jadwiga Hasa, a pharmacist from Warsaw, two survivors from the German Concentration camp at Ravensbruck, Poland, describe their life there. Both women were members of the Underground Army, the Polish resistance movement in WWII. The women describe how prisoners in the all-women concentration camp, who were referred to as "Lapin" (rabbits), were used in medical experiments by Nazi doctors, and discuss their lives after their liberation from Ravensbruck.
