About this title


From dust jacket flap: This is the chilling first-person account of a concentration camp that has remained virtually unknown - yet it is the place where the very foundations of the United States and Soviet space programs were laid. 'Dora' was the strangely feminine name that Nazis gave to the camp that inmates and guards of Bergen-Belsen, Auschwitz, and Buchenwald regarded as the worst of all. Jean Michel, a member of the French Resistance who survived Dora tells the horrifying story that historians have avoided. Hidden rocket facilities were established at Dora to ensure secrecy after the Allied bombing of Pennemünde in 1943. Concentration camp inmates hacked tunnels by hand into the Harz Mountains to house the factories. 60,000 Slaves Built V1s & V2s for the Nazis, laying the foundation of the United States and Soviet space programs and 30,000 died.
