In “The Wolves of Ravensbruk,” Russian artillery is heard drawing nearer and nearer. Seven women in the notorious Ravensbruk Nazi Concentration Camp struggle to survive long enough to be liberated. They find that the strength of their dedication to each other and their use of the arts as a survival tool may be their saving grace.
