  1. This was a difficult book to read, not so much for its content as because of the author s formal and somewhat distant accounting of herself, surely a result of her lifelong devotion to academia I think that what I love most about Countess Lanckoro ska s war narrative is how she continually and unselfconsciously refers to any humanitarian effort on her part as my work Here she is writing about a time she spent in near solitary confinement in the prisoner section of the concentration camp at Raven [...]


  2. Very inspiring tale of a countess turned professor turned underground turned concentration camp prisoner during WWII It s a very interesting, intelligent detail of the inside of everything during the war She tells of the Soviet occupation of Poland, then the Nazi occupation of Poland and then how it felt not to know what was happening to her homeland while she was in prison.


  3. A level headed aristocratic Polish university professor gets swept up in the resistance and prisoner welfare programs as the Soviets and Nazis divide up and invade Poland She accounts for life under both Soviet Russian and Ukrainian communist occupation as well as Nazi occupation She is eventually sent by the Nazis to Ravensbruck Concentration camp because a Gestapo leader slips up and boasts of murdering her university colleagues to her The details of her story and experiences are so interestin [...]


  4. It is hard for me to put this book down This memoir is about a brave wonderful woman who has 2 PhDs in Renaissance Art and how she deals with what is going on in Poland during WWII She found out that women in her concentration camp who had one hour to live before being executed, still wanted desperately to learn about art, art history I like that her text is peppered with Latin phrases A favorite excerpt From p 272,.e Marysia Kujawski came straight to the point You re making anti Communist prop [...]


  5. Great woman and art historian In her war memoirs she decribed her life during World War II stay in Lviv work at Central Welfare Council , aressting by Gestapo and hearing by Hans Kr ger, head of Gestapo in Stanis aw w he thought that countess will die soon and he told her that he played a great role in murdering Polish professors from Lviv at the begging of July 1941 and murdering Polish intelligence people making their living from work mainly of their mind in Stanis aw w From prison in Stanis a [...]


  6. Michelangelo in Ravensbruck is a true account of a polish countess of her life during the Holocaust Karolina Lanckoronska was born into the aristocracy in poland and lived a very privileged life She was educated in Rome and it was a classical education.In 1939 she was a professor at the university in Lwow Poland and had to flee to Krakow as the persecution of the intellectuals escalated she worked for the Red Cross and the underground and eventually was arrested but because of her background and [...]


  7. Pretty damn dry memoir of a Polish Countess lack of adventures during and just after World War II The Polish pronunciation guide at the front of the book is practically worthless And did we REALLY need detailed biographies of every person in her life At some points, the end notes refer you immediately to the biographies in the Appendix So it can take you nearly an hour to get through four pages because of flipping around so much from the text, the end notes and the biographies.Despite the title, [...]


  8. Great as a historical memoir, but the title is deceiving Very little of the book discusses art history, and she doesn t even reach Ravensbruck until 200 pages in of a less than 300 page book Before reading this, I was hoping to hear about how art history can be an inspirational force Her perspective was unique and certainly is an important aspect of understanding the Holocaust Just not what I was hoping for.


  9. This was a challenging read, but the author maintained an academic perspective on the horrible events happening around her, which helped some I admired the way that the author managed to find beauty in darkness for example, she focuses her narrative on the continued intellectual curiosity of her fellow inmates I would highly recommend it for any lover of history.


  10. This book is taken from the journals of a Polish noblewoman and university professor who participated in the Resistance during World War II The book contains a mixture of factual information about what happened and her reflections on her experience The book is easy to read but contains some quite profound insights.


  11. Fascinating insight into this little known aspect of WW II s dreadful history This book is slightly dated but in a way all the better for it as we are truly transported back to the values and s felt by this extraordinary woman at this time She was an amazing war hero and her story and her courage deserve to be better remembered.


  12. This is a powerful account of survival and resistance in Nazi occupied Poland, written by Countess Karolina Lanckoro ska, an art historian who died in 2002, aged 104.



  13. I would give it a 3.5 star rating I learned quite a bit from Karolina Lanckoronska, and am glad to have read the book.
