Zofia Posmysz: She Gained Acclaim for Her Works on the Holocaust as a Journalist, Novelist, Playwright and Screenwriter

From a New York Times obit by Richard Goldstein headlined “Zofia Posmysz, Who Wrote of Life in Concentration Camps, Dies at 98”:

Zofia Posmysz, who endured three years of imprisonment in concentration camps for associating with the Polish resistance to Nazi occupation in World War II, then gained acclaim for her works on the Holocaust as a journalist, novelist, playwright and screenwriter, died in Oswiecim, Poland.

Her death, in the city where the remnants of the Auschwitz concentration camp have been preserved as a reminder of humans’ capacity for unfathomable evil, was announced by the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum.
