January 1945, less than two weeks before the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp evacuation, four forced laborer women, Estusia Wajcblum, Rosa Robota, Alla Gartner, and Regina Safirstein were hanged in public, accused of sabotaging the Nazi war machine. Sabotage tells the dramatic unknown story of the women’s underground operation in Auschwitz-Birkenau. It is a story of feminine heroism, resistance, and tragedy told through the eyes of Anna Wajcblum Heilman, Estusia’s sister and youngest member of the women’s resistance.

Under the horrific inferno of Auschwitz, Anna writes a diary describing the dramatic story of the women’s resistance, the camaraderie, and the friendship between them.
