At the height of the Holocaust twenty-five young inmates of the infamous Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration campโ€”mainly Jewish women and girlsโ€”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. 
This fashion workshopโ€”called the Upper Tailoring Studioโ€”was established by Hedwig Hรถss, the camp commandantโ€™s wife, and patronized by the wives of SS guards and officers. Here, the dressmakers produced high-quality garments for SS social functions in Auschwitz, and for ladies from Nazi Berlinโ€™s upper crust. 
Drawing on diverse sourcesโ€”including interviews with the last surviving seamstressโ€”The Dressmakers of Auschwitz follows the fates of these brave women. Their bonds of family and friendship not only helped them endure persecution, but also to play their part in camp resistance. Weaving the dressmakersโ€™ 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.

I love history and Iโ€™ve read a lot of books about WWII and the horrors of Auschwitz and each story is utterly unique and worth reading, this book was no exception. A heartbreaking and beautiful story about survival, strenght and an amazing group of women.
