2015 Memorial Lecture

Hitler’s Furies: Researching Women Perpetrators, Accomplices and Witnesses to the Holocaust

Dr. Wendy Lower will present on her new book, “Hitler’s Furies” a finalist for the National Book Award and the National Jewish Book Award. Drawing from wartime documents, postwar trials, private letters, diaries and interviews, Dr. Lower will discuss outstanding cases of women who became direct witnesses, accomplices and perpetrators of the Holocaust. In the colonial outposts of the Nazi East, ordinary German women were an integral part of the ruling elite, and possessed extreme power over the lives of Jews and other victims of the Holocaust. She will examine what some of these women chose to do with this new-found power during the war and how they distorted their criminal behavior after the war.
