A Train In Winter is a moving story of solidarity and survival emerging out of the Nazi horrors of the Second World War and the French Resistance.

Caroline Moorehead’s book recounts the deportation of the 230 Frenchwomen of Convoi 31000 to Auschwitz-Birkenau on 24 January 1943. Only 49 survived and their story has been widely acknowledged as not only fascinating but important as a moving account of horror and survival.

Human rights journalist and biographer of Bertrand Russell, Martha Gellhorn and Freya Stark, Moorehead speaks with Carole Beu about these amazing women and about the art of biography.
