Did all the female camp guards serve at Ravensbrück before being posted to other concentration camps?

hi schmauser

to meet the need for more room and more guards, the ss
administration opened ravensbruck on may 15 ,1939
and begun to recruit and train ss-aufseherinnen
following their training, the ss overseers were either assigned
within the ravensbruck system,to other camps ,or to the juvenile
prisons and/or security service facilities.

Do we have any information on what the training comprised, as opposed to that of say, the Waffen-SS?

once the candidate reported for training, the length and
extent of that training varied. obviously, procedures were much
more systematic and thorough early on, but, as the war turned
agaist the nazis and conditions became more hectic, confused
and chaotic, training, if given at all, was exeedingly limited.
by almost any standard ,the "conditioning" process that
the female guards underwent was grueling and demanding.
throughout the entire conditioning process, the candidates were
subjected to as severe and harsh disciplining as the ss administrators
could muster.

I don't have the book on Aufseherin , but if any of you have access to it could you advise me if the name Anna Gluck, Anna Glueck or Anna Komark is featured.
