Read about this lady! A midwife at Auschwitz, something you don't think about....."During her time at Auschwitz, Leszczynska delivered over 3,000 babies. Half of those were murdered and another thousand died from the horrible conditions in the camp. But those with blond hair and blue eyes, about 500, were sent to be raised as Germans, and another 30 survived the camp."
When you COULD call the midwife! Britain had 10,000 district nurses and midwives in the 1950s. And, as these pictures show, they were the heartbeat of the community.
