A theater play on women in a German political prison during WWII, who are about to be taken to a concentration camp, was written by a Slovenian female author Mira Mihelič, who was herself imprisoned during the war. The book was published in Trieste, shortly after its liberation in 1945. Trieste, which is today a part of Italy, has a large Slovenian minority and was during WWII one of the centers of the Partisan resistance.
Mira Mihelič (née Kramer, 1912 – 1985) was a Slovenian writer, the president of Slovenian Association of Writers between 1963 and 1966, and a president of the Slovenian PEN club between 1966 and 1975. She also won several national awards for her work. Mira Mihelič learned English, French and German in a Swiss boarding school, and started studying law upon her return to Slovenia. During WWII she joined the Partisan resistance and was imprisoned two times.
Mihelič’s second husband was a prominent artist France Mihelič, who later often illustrated her works.
